RE: [kayaking-177] Anyone want to hit the Cartecay?

I am definitely running Cartecay on Saturday. I have run it at about 4.5 feet and it gets crazy but still runnable in a creek boat. I leave my play boat at home when it is over 3 feet. I live about 15 minutes from that river so I run it all the time.

 

Jay’s point about Whirlpool is very valid, though it is S-Turn that nails me at high water.

 

Cartecay is the best starter river below about 2.5.

Hey Dean, I paddle WW.  It's impressive that the Cartecay is still over 3ft.  My concern for Saturday is that more rain is expected.  At under 3ft. the Cartecay is a class 2/2+ river.  At 3-4 ft it becomes more class 3ish and less beginner friendly, but not out of the question if group dynamics are good.  Over 3.5 and especially over 4ft, the whirlpool rapid becomes retentive and a serious hazard.  I'm not sure about my plans for this weekend yet.

I'm unsure how many whitewater kayakers are on this meetup, but I'd love to find someone to hit the Cartecay with sometimes soon while the water level is up.  Anyone want to join me?
