Man, those AIRE boats are shiny! 4 pro men and 4 pro women teams competed in this year’s USRA Rafting Nationals on the Upper Clackamas. Add in 5 recreational teams to the mix and we had one heck of a good time! Team Teva (CO) took 1st ahead of the Ark Sharks (CO) and the Oregon Rafting Team (ORT, OR).
Team Teva leads the pack out of Fish Creek during the mass start downriver race to Memaloose.
AIRE graciously provided race boats for all the pro men and women teams during Nationals, thanks!
