OVERVIEW

So i have this thing where i have a toxic relationship with the james river. it is so convenient, and honestly so fun, but sometimes it is JUST REALLY LOW WATER like for a long time. but thats ok. because the james is a great river at any water level. anyways come paddle with me.

I’m planning on paddling two laps of the lower falls of the James with rapids ranging from class II-III. If we have overwhelming signups of a more beginner experience level, we can do the upper falls of the james (class I-II) into the lower as a warmup. Either way, you should have either:
a) paddled class III whitewater somewhat recently (within past year or two)
b) have or are working on a solid kayak roll
If you have any questions about whether this is you please please please contact me at the number below!

The Plan:
Sunday Morning pre-10am – possible bodos run? you will be contacted with details
10am – meet at echols with our gear
– drive to 14th st. takeout in richmond and set shuttle
– paddle ze lower twice– munch lunch between? or paddle both upper and lower and munch lunch on river
– take out, reset shuttle and head back to cville to eat more food tbh
– 5 should hopefully be the latest we get back – counting on a 3ish hr lap?

What to Bring
– Kit! Helmet, PFD, Skirt, Paddle, Watercraft, throwbag if ur cool
– it will be chilly! drytop, drysuit, wetsuit, clothes that will be warm when wet
– a lunch/snacks? water for sure
– a bag to stuff dry if you’re into that
– change of clothes and towel if you’re into that
– money for food maybe

If you don’t have those kayaking things or warm things, that’s ok. Just let us know and we’ll make sure you get em.
Please let us know if you can drive/transport boats!
If you have any questions please text Mitch (8049558990)
Hope to see you there!
