Whitewater Weekend: A Doubleheader!

The Maine whitewater season kicked off with the St. George and Passy River races last weekend, and now it's time for another doubleheader weekend.

Tomorrow (Saturday, April 18th) the Souadabscook Stream Canoe Race begins in Hampden at noon.

Note that there are two races offered on the Sou this year - a shorter race which stops before the whitewater (highly suitable for beginners) and the regular race course which takes you through several sets of rapids. Here's a writeup from the BDN if you'd like to know more.

And then there's the Marsh Stream Canoe Race in Frankfort on Sunday. This is one of those whitewater gems which is often overlooked but well worth a trip.

Visit the Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization ( for more information on these and other races this spring!

Kenduskeag Rescheduled For April 25th

The 49th Annual Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race has been rescheduled for
Saturday, April 25th.

Here's a report from the Bangor Daily News.

Originally scheduled for April 18th, the race event had to be postponed due to ice on the stream.

It's been that kind of winter - a lengthy deep freeze which as locked up most streams and rivers with ice, wreaking havoc on the first whitewater races of spring.

This marks the first time in 49 years that the Kenduskeag has been rescheduled.

Woo-hoo! Spring is just around the corner and you can now preregister for the 49th Annual Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race, to be held on April 18th, 2015.

Download the 2015 race registration form here.

You may also register online with Bangor Parks & Recreation (please note that you'll still have to download and return a signed registration form).

Last but not least, Bangor Parks & Recreation released this canoe race information flyer last month for anyone who needs some basic info.

Stay in touch for further race news and updates. By the way, the Bangor area has seen a decent amount of snowfall this winter (an understatement). My guess is the water could be "sporty" on race day. Should be fun!
