East Coast Senior Team Trials

Save the date: East Coast Senior Team Trials will be December 5th and 6th on the Mighty Susquehanna River at Falmouth/York Haven.

The course mirrors the river for the World Championships in Banja Luka (Bosnia), with flat sections and then some huge waves. This is just a quick announcement of the race with more details to follow. Check out for some video that makes it look much smaller than it actually is.
