We have had an average to good White Water season in Perth this year – see the red trace.

But the real bonus was Shane and the Slalom Committee getting an ‘Agricultural Release’ of  water from Wellington Damn which creates a wonderful, short narrow and technical WW course a few km downstream.  A  2 day training camp and comp was quickly organized and we all loved it.  Demelza capsized about a dozen times and rolled up each time!  Kira did her first roll in anger and Tark  and Liam showed great guts in getting back on the horse after some nasty swims.  We still can’t work out how Tark was the only person to get airborne!  A big thanks to Zlatan and Richard for putting the wires up on Friday, and to the other judges and helpers 🙂

Here is a Google map showing the exact location of the start of the course – its the obvious parking and chute on the bottom right.
