Racing the Upper Wind River

March 20-21
The 3rd Annual Upper Wind River Festival near Carson, WA, was a big hit again this year. Two days of mass start head to head racing provided a ton of fun and entertainment for both competitors and spectators. The Oregon Rafting Team organizes this event every year to kick off the Western Whitewater Championship racing series for kayakers, rafters and catarafters.

Excitement is high at the registration booth
