This past Sunday was the Premiere of this monthly event designed specially for beginners.
The first occurrence showed 5 paddlers braving the early morning fog to enjoy a good day on the river, 2 open canoes, 2 kayaks and 1 IK, the “new club” usual group. The fog lifted later on to let us paddle the North Clackamas under clear sky.
We went from McIver park down to Feldheimer. The flow was a normal 2090 cfs so it did not offer any real difficulty for this group of intermediate paddlers on a flow of above. No swim to report but rumors has it that a kayaker had to roll. We spent some time doing a little surfing as this is a fairly short trip. It tooks us about 2 and half hours including the compulsory lunch.
We’ll do that again next month, with I hope more real beginners. SO see you on March 14.
