NOTE the change of date confirmed with the Race Director due to anticipated tropical rains swelling the already full river.


The Friends of the Chickasawhay is inviting all canoe and kayak enthusiasts to join them on July 15th for the 3rd annual Shubuta to Waynesboro race on the Chickasawhay River, approximately 21 nautical miles, definitely an endurance race on a usually quiet, meandering river.


About a dozen of us went the past two years and had a blast.


One lesson learned is to paddle (not pedal) the "Chick". The river is too shallow along about 1/2 of the distance to use a Hobie mirage drive or Native propel. As this is a down stream paddle, the current should help you the whole way. Highly encourage use of a "plastic" kayak due to the numerous stumps and sandbars along the route.

We will be able to stage our kayaks at the launch on Friday afternoon with security in place overnight. This change will greatly simplify race morning logistics. I highly encourage everyone to stage your kayak at the launch or Friday.
