Ready for the St George Canoe Race

The paddling season is here. The St George race is this Saturday. Three days ago race director Dale Cross saw that there was still ice in the river, but on Saturday it had all opened up.

St. George Race Postponed to Sunday April 2nd

Cold water brought ice back into the St. George River postponing tomorrow’s MaCKRO race to April 2nd. The Passy race is next Saturday. Both are put on by Waldo County YMCA. They said they had 60 boats signed up for the St. George Race.

Whitewater racing
Plenty of paddlers, sun, fun for postponed St. George River Race
Seventy-nine craft and 118 participants finally enjoy spring conditions in weekend's second splash event

SEARSMONT — What a difference a day can make.

Just 26 hours after one Midcoast springtime whitewater canoe/kayak paddle race was held in snow flurries and near-freezing temperatures, the sun shone brightly and nearly twice as many craft and paddlers showed up to journey down a different river in much warmer conditions.
The only constants between the days of the Waldo County-sponsored events was the water was especially low in both rivers.

For the 38th annual St. George River Race on Sunday afternoon, April 2 there were 79 craft and 118 paddlers, compared to 54 craft and 84 paddlers at the 44th annual Passagassawakeag River Race on Saturday, April 1 (see separate story, photos and video from that event).
