All the participants, provided each with their shovel, from the end of the Ribadesella Beach, will leave from the arena, in a running race to the place where the pirogues will have been deposited previously, making, then, the first one of the portage. They will board the boats and go up the river until they meet with a ciaboga that will be located some 100 meters upstream of the Ribadesella Sports Pavilion; This ciaboga will be taken, due to the conditions of the tide, leaving the same to the right of the boat.
You will descend to the place where the canoes had initially been deposited, to carry out the second of the portages, and continue to the Ribadesella Bridge. At this time the test will end for the following categories: - Women (all categories) - Canoes (all categories) - Cadets (all categories). These boats must leave the regatta field once their route is finished, being a reason for disqualification their continuation in it. The rest of the categories (Youth, Senior and Sub23 men Kayakers), will continue the test by going one more lap, passing through the upstream ciaboga, to carry out the third of the portages and enter Meta when passing for the third time under the Bridge of Ribadesella.
