The Nelson Downriver Race is intended for anyone interested in canoe or kayak racing - from novices to national champions. Our goal is to promote recreation, conservation and sportsmanship through paddling rivers and lakes in and around Nelson County, Virginia.
The Nelson Area Paddlers

The amazing Blue Family recruit 3 generations of Tom Blues to power the only OC3 entry in the race.

Action at Rock Pile Rapid.

Veteran champion racer, Dave Dolak, slices a gash in his boat on Cutter Rock in Rockpile Rapid.

Ed Sharp and Kirk Havens try a more "interesting" route through Rockpile Rapid.

Despite mishaps and misadventures the Nelson Downriver Race crowd is always there to cheer you on.
