Safety notes- The "rapids" are generally small and beginner-friendly. However, please remember that this event is not entirely risk free. You will be expected to sign a waiver when you arrive at the site. There will be one section (Compton Rapid) that is a Class II rapid and can be a little intimidating if you are new to kayaking or if the water is high. If you don't feel comfortable, no worries! Plenty of us will be thrilled to do it more than once and will take your kayak down for you!
Weather: This is a rain or shine event. The event will only be cancelled in the event the outfitter closes due to unsafe weather conditions.
