Reminder to you all to get your own travel insurance. Accidents or illness can happen when travelling and, although there will be event medical assistance and cover, it never covers everything.
You can't drink from the taps. So if you have water purifiers bring them along.
The prices to buy water are about 0.5 USD per bottle (1.5L) or 2.5 USD per gallon (14L).
Let's try keep the plastic bottles we throw away to a minimum!!!!
Checks on ages and nationalities!
Judges will be checking to ensure each competitor is within the age ranges of their specific age categories. So make sure all your paddlers are within the correct ranges as specified in the
The same for nationalities. Check the rules to make sure everyone in your team is complying.
If you are not within the rules for this you will NOT be allowed to paddle!!!!

We know there is internet about 500m away from the river and they are trying to get it next to the river. If it is at the river we will run the
