Sunday Paddle - Violettes Lock-GW Canal Loop

Another Sunday on the George Washington Canal. We will meet at 9:00 in the Violettes Lock parking lot (13948 Violettes Lock Rd). We will then cross the Potomac to run the canal and then return to Vilolettes Lock via either the C&O canal or, for the hardy, an attainment up Seneca Breaks. As always, please let the trip coordinator, Ginny Quam, know if you will be joining at or 703-623-0774.

The weather forecast is mostly sunny, high of 80, winds SW 8 mph. The forecast river level is 2.8’ on the Little Falls gage, a low level for this section of river.

PFDs are required for all. Helmets are required for kayakers using spray skirts and highly recommended for all others. Airbags are strongly encouraged for boats without other means of flotation. If you need safety equipment, please advise the trip coordinator in advance.
