Overview

The Winnipesaukee River will have guaranteed water during daylight hours starting at 11:00 on Friday, June 21, through Sunday June 23 for the second annual Winni River Days event. Camping will be available for Friday and Saturday nights. This event helps support the planned Whitewater Play Park in downtown Franklin Let's kick off the weekend with a rare Friday afternoon run on the Upper Winni (Class II). This is a short run that gradually builds from Quickwater to Class II, making it perfect for newer whitewater paddlers. More experienced paddlers can practice some Class III moves (with Class II consequences if you miss), making this an ideal warmup for the weekend. You will need a whitewater-capable kayak or canoe with flotation. Kayaks will need a sprayskirt. Helmets and PFDs must be worn at all times when on the river. Rental boats (with paddle, float bags, helmet and PFD) are available from AMC NH (http://www.nhamcpaddlers.org/rentals.html#how). Please contact leader for start time.

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.
