Description: Veneon Derby

Competitors leave in teams of three paddlers. They must have a complete safety equipment to go down from La Bérarde to Champhorent. This course brings together all the facets of high river sailing: difficult class IV / V rapids, compulsory lines, a portage and a fast V where you have to go one by one.

The Chrono starts when the first team member crosses the starting line and stops when the last one reaches the finish line.

The Derby du Vénéon is born from the passion of mountain sports and the Vénéon river. After countless descents on this alpine torrent, we thought that this river deserved its annual event. Inspired by the ski Derbys, and in particular that of La Grave, neighbor, we told ourselves that on the same principles, that is to say down a whole mountain slope with a chrono for only judge, applied to the kayak navigation we could do a unique test. The derby is one of the longest extreme kayak races in the world, with a race format team and physical and technical requirements that can not be seen anywhere else!
