Save the French Broad Float 2014 Number 2

  • July 12, 2014 · 9:00 AM

The French Broad Riverkeeper and Western NC Alliance have released details for the Save the French Broad Float 2014. As anticipated, the paddle will be broken into two segments. This is the second of the two part adventure. It runs from 12 - 15 July 2014, starts in Asheville and ends at the Tennessee border. It's great trip on a fun river. You paddle for 10 - 18 miles, get out at a camp ground, set up your tent that has already arrived by van, enjoy wonderful eats provided by the host, and then do the same the next day. Can't do all four days? There's an option of just doing the first two days. 

A bit more challenging, this second portion involves some Class II - III water. My 15.5' sea kayak did just fine as did a 9' Swifty. Bring what you've got - you'll be fine.

This trip goes through the infamous Section 9. Actually we put our boats on trailers at Barnard and outfitters take us on rafts through the rapids to Hot Springs.

It's a good cause and you'll be helping out some wonderful folks that have been making a positive impact for clean water and recreation in the Southeast.

Last year's trip was awesome. Don't miss this one.
