Each year the Potomac River Festival features The Great Falls Race. This downriver race is a quick, adrenaline-packed descent of 60 vertical feet through the Potomac's spectacular Class V+ Great Falls.
I was able to attend the practice sessions on Friday. As you can see a Class V+ race run is not for a Sunday paddlers. I can assure you that these photos were not taken with a GoPro camera. 😊.
