I would like to get in some after work/class richmond paddling Friday Afternoon. The Lower James through Richmond is III-IV at these water temperature and levels. In order to come on this trip you should have a solid combat roll and prior experience in class III+ water. If you are not sure if you are qualified for this trip, just sign up and I will get in touch with you.
The plan will be to leave around 4pm from Bonnycastle or the most convenient place for everyone. Number of attendants will be based on number of vehicles and boat space.
I am NOT “leading” on any of these rivers, I am only coordinating some logistics and transportation to the rivers, you are responsible for your own safety and the activities you choose to participate in while on this trip, and you agree to have read and will abide by the American Whitewater Safety Code http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Wiki/safety:start?
Those with the appropriate skills may join as “Common Adventurers”
**Please note that the trip may be canceled due to water level, weather, or changing plans.
