The Third Annual Powell River Kayak and Canoe Regatta will be held on Saturday April 29, 2017. The race is a 12-mile event beginning at Well Being Conference Center on the Class 1 Powell River in scenic in the scenic Cumberland Mountains of NE Tennessee. The race is a production of the Claiborne County Tourism Commission and the Claiborne County Chamber of Commerce.
Here’s what a couple paddlers said about last year’s event:
“What a well prepared and professionally run event! It seems like I only met a small fraction of the many volunteers you had on hand but everyone was helpful and friendly. As a paddler, I felt spoiled. Nice! Hopefully your ‘first’ annual regatta will continue into a second and more. If so, I’ll be back. And what a beautiful river you have. Even while racing, there was enough time to notice the river and the countryside along its banks. Again, thank you for putting on such a great event. Please thank everyone for making an awesome weekend.” Jim B. from Knoxville
