Cape Fear River Rendezvous will be a river takeover event no matter the level. This event is being hosted as a part of ACA's Summer Solstice program. If the rivers stay normal flow, we will paddle recreational and whitewater boats down the 8-mile stretch from the new NCWRC boat ramp at Wildlife Road down to the Cape Fear River Trail Park in Erwin, NC. This section contains the largest gradient drop of the entire Cape Fear River, which includes multiple class II rapids. It is very beginner friendly, even in a whitewater kayak. At normal flows it will also be a family friendly trip. We will stop at the island near the 4-mile point to enjoy lunch and hang out time before the last 4 miles of rapids.

If the river level is too high for recreational boats, we will still conduct the trip with whitewater boats and look at how many recreational boaters we have that may want to take a whitewater sit on top or raft down and organize that.

The adverse weather date will be Sunday, June 23rd. Registration is how I will keep track of who is planning to attend and to keep updated. You can also RSVP to the ncstatedirector@americancanoe.net to receive the same notifications, updates, and be sure to get on the list for an ACA Summer Solstice Sticker.

All of the details of the trip will be sent through email to the participants a couple weeks prior to the event.

Thank you and hope to see you out there!
