River Safety

We paddle through the entire year, rain or shine. Sometimes conditions are beyond our control.

Adverse Wind Speed Safety Considerations:

  • At wind speeds above 30 miles per hour ALL on-water activities in club owned equipment is canceled.
  • At wind speeds above 20 miles per hour is cause to seriously consider cancellation of activity.

Adverse Water Flow or Speed Safety Considerations:

  • A rate of flow at or above 4 feet per second ALL on-water activities in club owned equipment is canceled.
  • A rate of flow at or above 3 feet per second is cause to seriously consider cancellation of activity.

Adverse Water Temperature Safety Considerations:

  • Water temperatures below 40 degrees F in combination with elevated winds or elevated river velocity is a reason to consider cancellation of activity.
  • Lightning in the area or on the horizon is an automatic reason to cancel activities.
