PNW ORCA Winter Series Race #1: Wasabi Bridge To Bridge

Join Wasabi Paddling Club for the first winter series race of 2018.  We're returning to the old Rusty Iron race course, but have added a great new twist. The course begins just south of the Sauvie Island bridge on Multnomah Cannel, and racers paddle up to the bridge, then down to St John’s Bridge by Cathedral park, and back.  This course offers 4 distinct legs with stunning views at each turn (let's hope it's not raining).  To add more intrigue, this course is an 8 miler, giving you a great way to kick start your winter training!


We have a raffle for a winter series travel package complete with all the goods that make winter racing comfy.  Awards and Hawaiian plate lunch from Bamboo Grove await at the finish line.
