Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
James River - Richmond
The Lower James through Richmond is a short, Class III run with some fun play spots. Let’s plan to leave Charlottesville (meeting at Echols dorm) at 10 which will put us on the water by 12 hopefully. Depending on how long we play at Pipeline (last rapid on the run and the best surf spot) and if / how many laps people want to do, we’ll probably be off the river by 5 or 6 at the latest.
You need to have a solid roll and good boat control to come on this trip, as it is a class III run and the water will be COLD.
I’m waitlisting everyone at the moment; if I don’t know you and your ability, I’ll send you an email to check in on what your kayaking experience is, just for safety’s sake. (Its okay if I don’t know you, still sign up, I just want to make sure you’ve got the experience for this river since the water is chilly).
We will most likely stop at Legends afterwards for warm food and drinks, so bring some $$/id for this as well.
You provide: gear if you have it (5 essentials), lunch/snacks, towel, warm dry clothes for after, bathing suit/clothes that can get wet, non-cotton layers for kayaking, river shoes (closed toe preferable), $ for food at Legends
Club provides: gear if you need it, gas $$
