Shortsville, NY

The race starts off on the Canandaigua Outlet in historic Littleville (Hopewell), continues Budd Park in Shortsville, and ends in Manchester just before the New York State Thruway.
Spectators watch all along the waterfront with the biggest watching at Budd Park in Shortsville.

Rules

Raft Construction Rules

  • Each raft must have a launch rope tied to the end that is 20’ long and strong enough to pull the water out of the Outlet at the end of the raise.
  • If any wood screws are used, they must be completely screwed into 2X type material with no exposed tips that could cut anyone.
  • Where bolts are used, extra long bolts located near paddlers shall be shortened to prevent injury.
  • Rafts and raft items that are not pulled out by the recovery team at the end of the course must be removed by the rafting team within two weeks after the race (water level will be lowered to assist you).

Other than that, be imaginative.

Pirate raft

Safety Rules for Derby Participants

  • There are no age restrictions.  Historically, we have had children as young as 12 years old on rafts with parents.  However, the insurance liability for a minor must be signed by a parent at the registration table.
  • PDF’s and helmets are required, which we have available for free use at the starting line.
  • There is no limit to the number of people on a raft or canoe. However, every one on the raft must be registered
  • FYI, at the rapids, you will always be in full view by members of our multiple swift water rescue teams.

Safety and fun are number 1!
