2015 Race Update

Tentative Race Weekend May 1-3, 2015

As we enter a fourth year of drought, Clear Lake, the source of flows for our races is still well below the elevation needed to assure releases for irrigation, for this the lake level must reach at least 3.22 ft at the Rumsey Gauge.  Yolo County Irrigation District will announce updates, or you can check the gauge level on the USGS website.  Rains in December helped tremendously but not enough to make our race a certainty.   Bottom line:  Pray for rain, do a raindance etc...

The other complicating factor for this year's race is the current closure of the Cache Creek Campground where we stage the race and provide camping. We hope to know whether the campground will be open in time for the races by the middle of February.

2014 Races are canceled due to drought

Sorry folks , not much of a surprise but there will not be irrigation releases on cache creek this year due to the drought, so our race for May 17-18 is canceled.

The races will be back next year as long as there is water. In the mean time pray for rain!
