Message from the TCA
THE 41ST ANNUAL TENANDEHO WHITE WATER DERBY WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY, APRIL 6 2014. The details of the race are included in the attached race application.
The waiver and day-of-race membership forms for USA Canoe and Kayak will be available at the registration table.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no registrations after 11:00 AM or at the start line at Coons Crossing. If you feel that you might not be able to be in Mechanicville to register before the 11:00 AM cut-off time, please pre register! That will guarantee you a place in the race.

Helmets are required to be worn from start to finish by all paddlers of covered canoes and all kayakers. Anyone not complying will be disqualified. We recommend helmets for all paddlers of open canoes as well. Many sports require helmet use, especially in competition. It is just good common sense.

In the interest of fairness, the short kayak class is now for boats under 13 feet long, leaving the long class to kayaks 13 feet long and over. The shorter kayak class is intended for white water playboats, slalom style kayaks, and shorter recreational kayaks. The longer class is for racing designs, wildwater boats, and longer recreational kayaks.

Come and bring your family and friends! The more the merrier! We are looking forward to seeing you on the water.
