Great Shiplock/Chapel Island Park

Let’s face it. You have not nearly spent as much time on the water as you planned to. Let’s head out on a paddle adventure start the spring season.  We will paddle the James south of the falls, and then back.

There is no rental at this location. If you do not have one, time to beg, borrow, or buy!

Afterwards for those that are interested, let’s hit two of Richmond’s landmarks:

Poe’s Pub for Grub

Stone Brewing to see what all the hype is about.

Kayak Distance:  4 hours

Elevation Change:  Pretty flat – Minor wakes and eddies

Kayak Pace:  3 knots per hour

Terrain:  Wet

    Hi all
    Cleared all the old comments. This event was rescheduled due to the hurricane and high water levels in 2018 on the original date.

    Sadly I have to cancel. I had surgery on my arm 6 weeks ago, although I believe I could paddle, it’s loading my kayak that could undo all the progress I’ve made so far.

    posted the tides chart – all things being equal we will ride low tide out and catch high tide back. All depends how far we go. It will almost hit 90 deg F so please bring sunscreen and appropriate cover and H2O

    Thanks for the workout, Steve. My arms feel great. The scenery and bird life along that stretch were quite a surprise. We’re heading to huguenot flatmates in the morning tomorrow for a quick paddle if anyone is interested in joining us.
