To be announced at Paddle 09 Saturday is a new race, The Tay Descent.
It'll happen on 23rd October 2010, the same weekend as Paddle 2010. There will be three courses, all finishing in Perth. Part of the Perth 800 celebrations, it will be very loosely based on the Liffey Descent.
6 miles - grade 1
12 mile - some grade 2/3
23 miles - some grade 2/3
There'll be classes for different boat types, from open canoes to sea kayaks, and different age groups. There'll be a 'tour' version, for those who want to just enjoy the descent, and a 'race' event for the more competitive.
