James River - Richmond
Richmond offers a unique white water run with its class 4 rapids and skyline in the background. We’ll run this section of the James as it flows alongside downtown Richmond with some class 2, 3 and 1 class 4 rapid – area famous Hollywood Rapid. In order to be qualified for this trip you must have taken the intro trip with me or have similar experience, have lots of prior river experience in at least class 2 rapids, and have a decent flat water roll. So that I can screen your experience you will be added to the waitlist upon joining, then I will move you to the trip list if you are qualified. If you have any questions please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell at (434) 962-9737.
I will already be in Richmond paddling the section above this one (class 1-2), so will coordinate to meet you at the put-in for the lower run, or can coordinate to meet in town at 8:00 am if you’d like to join me for that run. The start time for this adventure is the time I anticipate to be at the Reedy Creek put-in. I will coordinate carpooling if enough people sign up who plan to meet at Reedy.
