Event description

Description

As part of the Gathering of Friends, the annual membership meeting and weekend for the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, join a 6.8-mile guided paddle from Ronda to Crater Park on North Carolina’s second longest river. From 1 to 5PM on Friday, March 23, you’ll learn about Yadkin Riverkeeper’s work to promote a clean and healthy river while enjoying the peace and serenity of this natural resource. Paddlers meet starting at Noon at Crater Park, 310 Standard St, Elkin, NC 28621, to catch the shuttle. Paddle starts at 1PM.

All paddlers must register. Children over age 8 are welcome.

Registration closes Wednesday, March 21.

  • Paddlers with their own boats are charged a $35 fee per person to cover insurance, shuttle, processing fees and entry to post-paddle events. If you have paid your Yadkin Riverkeeper Membership Fee ($25), the fee to paddle is $28.

  • Don’t have a canoe or kayak? Yadkin Riverkeeper has negotiated discounted rates for kayak rental (holds one person, $37 per day) or canoe rental (holds two people, $49 per day). Rental charges are in addition to your entry fee.

  • At every paddle, we look for a limited number of volunteers to assist on the WATER with boat safety (must be a good swimmer and familiar with water safety and first aid). There are steeply discounted paddling rates if you would like to volunteer ($10 paddling fee). These positions go quickly, so sign up early.

IMPORTANT FOR REGISTERED PADDLERS:

Paddlers meet at Noon at Crater Park, 310 Standard St, Elkin, NC 28621, to catch the shuttle.

Personal Flotation Devices (PFD's) are REQUIRED for all paddlers. PFD's are included in your kayak or canoe rental; however, if you are supplying your own boat, please bring a PFD. All paddlers are required to sign a waiver; if you have a minor child, the waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian.

WHAT TO BRING/WEAR:

  • Clothing for the weather (layers are recommended)
  • Water shoes
  • A dry bag for items you don't want to get wet
  • Bottle of water
  • Sunscreen
  • Snacks for you that include protein - power bars are good choices
  • ID
  • Money
  • Do not bring anything on the water that you cannot afford to lose
