James River - Richmond
At current water level this fine section of the James through downtown Richmond is suitable for intermediates-advanced paddlers. There are mostly class 3 rapids with 1 class 4, which we’ll scout and then I’ll guide you through. DO NOT SIGN UP UNLESS YOU’VE AT LEAST PADDLED CLASS 3 RAPIDS. It really helps, but you don’t need to have a solid roll to join, but you need to be confident with your paddling and should be prepared to swim. If you are unsure if you are qualified, sign up anyway and contact me. 760-2739…..Legends is a great post paddling experience and is just down the way from the takeout (by car, of course). They have excellent wings, sometimes have good blue grass bands, and make a fine brew (which you can enjoy only if you are 21 or over, of course 🙂
Trip qualifications and trip status are subject to change depending on weather/water level.
