Sorry early spring race fans – we went to the Blackwater today to see if the ice situation was any better than last weekend but it’s not. There are ice shelves overhanging the river on both sides, enough to cause a liability we’re not willing to risk. We’re canceling for the 2nd time in 35 years.
The official dates for the 2018 NESS races have been posted 🙂
Dates on the individual race pages and registration forms have been updated as well.
If you are a Race Organizer, please check your race page(s) for accuracy. Contact the NESSRACE.COM webmaster if you need to change anything.
Profits from the Winni Slalom are being donated to Paws New England (www.pawsnewengland.com). Please check out their website and consider adopting a dog as awesome as Millie if you are considering getting a pup.
The “Any Length” class has been changed to be more consistent with the ACA Class names. It has been replaced by “OC-1 Open” and “OC-1 Women’s Open.” “Open” means any boat length, any boat material, any age, any sex (except in the case of “Women’s Open”).
In January 2013, this website was commissioned by the NESS Coordinator and Race Organizers of the New England Slalom Series whitewater racing organization. Its orginal purpose was to facilitate online registration & payment for New England Slalom Series races. Since then, it has become the official website for all NESS information.
