Enjoy river running? Ever wanted to canoe the James but didn’t want to shell out $25 to an outfitter? This is your chance. While it may not be the most exciting stretch of water in the world, the 6 miles of the James River between Warren and Scottsville provide beautiful scenery and a little class I (low class II) whitewater action to keep things interesting. Water levels are currently a little on the high side due to last weeks heavy rain, but are well within outfitter guidelines for safe canoeing. The higher water levels also means the water will be moving faster and you’ll have to paddle less.

It is early in the season for canoeing so participants should dress for cool weather (mid 50s to low 60s) and synthetic clothing is a must. If the weather deteriorates significantly I will cancel the trip, but for now forecast for mid day Saturday looks good.

The trip is open to anyone who wants to canoe, but is especially good for those who want an introduction to canoeing.

Participants should bring:
Synthetic clothing
Light fleece
River shoes (Tevas, Chacos, Keens or old tennis shoes will do)
Rain shell in case of rain
Lunch or money to grab food in Scottsville at the end of the trip

Club provides canoes, paddles, pfd’s (life jackets), gas

I currently have space for myself and five others on this trip but will need one more driver in order to run shuttle.

My apologies for this late posting for the trip. If I can’t get a reasonable number of people to sign up, I may choose to postpone the trip to a later date.
