Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
The river levels are holding well, let’s go kayaking on Saturday.
THE WATER WILL BE VERY COLD!
This is NOT a beginners trip, you should be comfortable on class III water (Lower James at normal summer levels for example) and have at least a solid roll in the pool and have made some combat rolls. Due to the high water any swims will be long and cold. So please don’t sign up if you do not meet these requirements.
Bring NON-COTTON layers to wear under the wetsuits and semi-dry tops that the club provides.
Bring your own snacks and beverages.
The venue may be determined based on flow conditions and skill level of paddlers – but time and minimum skill level remain the same.
Your name will go onto the wait-list when you join, then I will move the first driver and then add names in order of those who signed up provided that they are qualified. I’m setting the initial trip max to 4 people as that is the number of boats and bodies I can carry.
I may expand it depending on the number of drivers and boat transporters and advanced paddlers that sign up. If you have a boat and gear and can transport it, you are automatically in.
The Club provides: Boats, gear, boat transport, (including dry tops, wetsuits, a limited selection of gloves and booties), gas for drivers.
