Stage 6

Lower Rakaia

The river adventure continues! This time it is in kayaks and on down through the Rakaia Gorge. This is a long section but with decent flows, it could go quicker than teams think. The key to a good time is to pick the right braids (or channels), the ones with the best flow. Pick the wrong one and you could end up travelling further and quite a bit slower. There are literally hundreds of braid choices down the length of the river, so teams will have to concentrate. The river is Dark Zoned (no paddling at night between the hours of 8pm and 7.15am) and teams must camp at the side of the river during Dark Zone. No portaging is permitted at night.
