Great Falls Kayak Race

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.  😊.

The easy part is that it is all downhill.

A little choppy here.

Really?  Did I miss a turn?
