The section of the James River above (upstream of) Richmond offers lots of class 1 and 2 rapids and is a great place to learn and/or practice river skills. This trip is for beginner paddlers: those that have been in a white water kayak on flat water or those that have only been down a river a handful of times. Please do NOT sign up unless you have taken the intro class with me or have similar experience, which means you must have experience paddling a white water kayak while wearing a spray skirt and know how to wet-exit. Knowing how to T-rescue is recommended but not required; knowing how to Eskimo roll is also not required. Email, text or call me if you are not sure of your qualifications, dave.clark@virginiakayakschool.com; 434-962-9737.

**This is also a great opportunity for intermediate paddler who are interested in learning this section of river to lead future trips. We need more kayak trip leaders!!!

I might run the river section below this one after we are finished (and might set that up as a separate trip), so will need at least 1 driver. Your name will go onto the waitlist when you join, then I will move the first driver and then add names in order of those who signed up. If you have the qualifications and a boat + gear and can transport them, you are automatically in.

The Club provides: Boats, gear (including cold water paddling gear), boat/gear transport

You should bring: swim wear, non-cotton layers, towel, change of clothes, sunscreen, water, snacks, lunch, your boat/gear if you have it, money for food/snacks after the trip
