"The Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race, held annually on the third weekend of April, is the largest paddling event in New England and one of the largest in the country. Hosted by the Bangor Dept. of Parks & Recreation, the 16.5 mile race begins in the Town of Kenduskeag and ends near the confluence of the Penobscot River in downtown Bangor."
We can shoot at the launch site in Kenduskeag, camp out at 6 Mile Falls to get shots of paddling competitors (or capture the portage), and/or set up at the finish in Bangor. If anyone has photographed or attended this race before, please share your thoughts on the best approach for shooting this event. Personally, I'm tempted to try and get to all three points (start, falls, and finish), but that might be a stretch.
I've included the event link, and there are a number of referenced photo albums from the past years' events. This is a fun, well-attended event and should lend itself for some exciting photographic opportunities.
P.S. Start time will greatly depend on which part(s) of the race we'd like to capture. Early morning in Kenduskeag, roughly 9am at the falls, or around 11am to meetup in Bangor. Let's discuss. :)
