Generally, rainfall is good for whitewater paddlers, who relish hitting rivers and streams when things get wet and wild. Recent rain, however, has created wilder-than-optimal conditions on the Machias River, forcing the postponement of the Machias River Race scheduled for April 29.
According to race organizer Jeff Owen, the race will be staged on May 20 — three weeks later than originally scheduled. All other details of the race, including start time and registration, remain unchanged.
