Eildon to Alexandra Race 19 March 2016

A small but determined team of FCC paddlers headed up to Eildon on Saturday 19th March to compete in the E2A Classic Downriver Race, from Eildon to Alexandra.  The powers that be had decided to release a significant amount of water from Eildon wier into the Goulburn: 7,000ML/day - which results in a fun and very fast river.  It made some of the rapids easier but it also made fast decisions essential.  The first section of the race, 14km from Eildon to Thornton, included the Bluegums rapids (grade 2) as well as several smaller rapids.  The second section, 19km from Thornton to Alexandra, was slightly less "downhill" but included a number of very swirly rapids, fast currents and the odd island to provide choices between "the right way" and "a long slow and possibly wet extrication from the wrong way".
