Overview

This will be a Class II trip focused on building solid whitewater skills and is especially meant fornewbies or paddlers who need a refresher. Water levels permitting, we'll start in the morning with a quick, fun run down the Upper Winni (Quickwater/Class I/Class II) taking some time to practice ferries, eddy entries and peel outs, wave surfing on the easy features this section offers. After lunch, we'll do the Pemi Bristol (30 min. north). This is a Class II (III) run with an optional bigger wave train/surf spot at the very end (we'll scout it ahead of time, so you'll know what to expect). Combined, these two rivers offer a perfect a progression from Quickwater to a low-consequence Class III feature as a "graduation exercise."

The AMC was there for me when I wanted to learn how to paddle a kayak on whitewater. Now I'm leading trips to give others the same opportunity.
