For the past two years Gerry Seavo-James has been making things happen in the Bluegrass state.  Last year, James created the Kentucky Waterman Series and has advocated and promoted tirelessly ever since.

The series has proven to have had a catalyzing effect on paddling in the area, bringing out new competitors and improving the current stock in the area by upping the ante with the localized series.

This Saturday marks the finale for the 2017 season and looks to be a good one.  The Big South Fork River Dash is set in the beautiful Kentucky mountains just outside of neighboring Whitley City.

This year, the race features three distance options: four, eight and fourteen miles.  The course travels through deep river valleys along limestone rock outcroppings; a beautiful representation of Kentucky’s signature style. The river, although not particularly deep, will likely not warrant over-stern rudders unless there has been significant drought.

Registration is already looking solid, so if you’re looking for a final test before mother nature bleeds the last remaining warmth from our fair part of the globe, head over to Big South Fork and mix it up with the locals.
