Round 1 kicks off in Yorkshire, deep in the hidden Washburn Valley. The exact timetable will be posted shortly but we'll be kicking things off this year with the Boto-X heats from 10am. Registration will be open from 8am in the morning. We'll be eating on Saturday night at the Hopper Lane Hotel (included in the weekend ticket) just a short walk from the campsite. Cost for the weekend ticket will be £25.00.

The get in and general car-park for the river is beneath Thruscross reservoir and from here the river flows down into the Fewston reservoir. The more exciting parts of the river are up stream and can be walked back along after a paddle down. If want a slightly longer paddle there is a car-park at the Fewston reservoir making shuttles nice and easy. The river is narrow and flows fast so swimmers can be tricky to rescue quickly but no major dangers await an unfortunate paddler as long as they are comfortable taking an unexpected dip. At worst they can always be collected up in the reservoir with a few bruises on their butt.
Here some links with some more photos of the Washburn and surrounding area.
