Let’s go kayaking! It has rained a ton recently, and as you know, rain + snowmelt = BIG rivers. Where we go is very water-level dependent, options include high-water Balcony Falls, the Maury River (Goshen Pass section), the Lower James, or one of the many creeks in Nelson County if any of them hold enough water.
To come on this trip you need to have a solid roll and solid boat control in class III water. You must have paddled the Lower James or equivalent at least once without incident. If you have questions about your ability to do this run, email me!
The water will be cold (even though the weather will be in the 60’s!), so be prepared. The club has cold water gear if you need it, but you need to email me asap if you need any of this. You also need to email me if you need ANY boating gear–kayak, paddle, pfd, etc–so I can coordinate with Dave Clark.
You provide: kayaking and cold water gear you have it, warm clothes and towel for after, water, lunch, snack food, closed toed river appropriate shoes
Club provides: gas $$, kayaking/cold water gear if you need it.
