Registration for the first annual K-BOMB whitewater kayak race is officially open! On July 21st kayakers are going to take over the Kennebec. Not planning on racing? We’d still love to see you up here watching! There is easy access to the river at Magic Falls rapid and it’s a great place to watch another kayaker come through every minute for over an hour! The Marshall’s will be hosting an after party as well, where we’ll do an awards ceremony and hand out some awesome prizes and swag, followed by LIVE music from The Venus Project!!!
We’re stoked to have these guys up jamming and we think all you kayakers will really dig their sound. Long story short, it’s going to be a weekend you don’t want to miss out on! Can’t wait to see everyone for the race! Stay tuned for more updates as we draw nearer.
While attending the Big Air 420 kayak gathering at Limmington Rips I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Mitchell, a citizen of Westbrook. Rob showed up with print outs and concept plans for something amazing. He has discovered a unique and amazing opportunity to create one of the first whitewater river parks in Maine. Sappi, who owns and operates a hydroelectric station at Sacarappa Falls in the heart of Westbrook has allocated a large sum of money to build a concrete fish ladder. Now, anyone with half a brain who has ever seen one of these knows they are hideous and they don’t work. Rob has proposed a unique alternative that fits within their budget and will not only please the fish, but also create spectacular outdoor recreation opportunities for the community while improving green space and creating a better water front. I had the privilege of filming Rob while he spoke about this amazing opportunity. Please enjoy this video, and find Rob’s idea on Facebook at Facebook.com/westbrookriverpark
