Sunday Paddle - George Washington Canal

We will return to the George Washington Canal for this week's trip. We will meet at the Violette's Lock parking lot in order to run a loop trip with return via the C&O canal. Parking is becoming difficult at the C&O canal parking lots, as happens every summer, so we will move the meeting time to 9:00. As always, please let the trip coordinator (Wayne McDaniel, macinmd1@gmail.com, 443 542 8779) know if you will be joining.

The weather forecast is delightful with a high in the mid-70s and virtually no chance of rain (famous last words). The forecast river level is 3.6’ on the Little Falls gauge, an excellent 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.
