Pumphouse to Dotsero Informal Race

I am planning on trying to run from Pumphouse to Dotsero the spring during high water and though it might be fun to turn this in to an informal unsanctioned race. This is just for fun there is nothing official just some people getting together to boat, there is no entrance fee and you do this totally at your own risk, have to add a little legal BS just to be clear.

We have a tentative date of 6/3, just a guess that the water will be high enough by then. We will launch at dawn and first one to the Dotsero take-out wins, there are no prizes just bragging rights. You are on your own on the water we can work out shuttle for those that are interested.

Give me your feedback, Trolls give it your best. Not sure if this is a good idea but thought I would throw it our there and see.

Are dories allowed?

I got a raft and a crew that is interested. We were already talking about seeing if we could do Pump to Dot in a day.

I kinda dig this; exactly the sort of ridiculous stuff I like to do in the outdoors. Keep me posted!

I can't get my hands on a dory. Don't use them commerically either, I don't mind keeping it all rubber.

Can we use multiple oar frames or do we want to limit it to one?
