Update: 2015 Avon Descent Course

Following the unpredicted rainfall in the catchment areas on Tuesday improving river levels and forecasts for heavy falls in the next two days, Northam’s Avon Descent Association have reverted to a full course for this year’s event.

The Race Director Jim Smith said that the decision was provisional in the belief that the forecast rains will provide a good race.

Mr Smith said that while infrastructure was in place for a full race if the expected rain fails to effect the river levels they will change back to the low water contingency plan.
