Dean's Poster

March 26th;   49th Annual Vermilion River Race, OH

>This is the club's 49th annual race, one of the oldest in the US. The rapids are an easy class I , and the race is appropriate for novice to expert racers as well as recreational and sea kayaks. We encourage families and small groups who want to race together. This race is a great opportunity to shake the cobs off your muscles and get ready for the paddling season.
Please check Rules & Application for change in classes and rules.
We have added a new class for you Stand Up Paddle Boarders
Be sure your Ohio boat registration is up-to-date.
Water level is critical, the race will only be held on this section of the river if the USGS Gauge is between 2.8 to 6 feet. If it's too low, the race will be moved downstream to start and finish at the South Street Boat Launch Ramp on West River road in Vermilion. If it's too high it will be scheduled for April 2, 2017
