In order to participate in any cruise, you must be a CW member and sign a waiver for each cruise:
Finding people to paddle with is hard when you're new to kayaking. To help out, we're continuing last season's Monday Night Meetup (NOT an official CW cruise) to paddle after work in Golden. Come join Ruth Eipper for some paddling fun! We'll meet at the Golden Playpark (10th and Maple, parking lot on the left by the river) at 5:30pm
This meetup is open for anyone who has had at least one day of instruction in a boat on moving water. We may be able to make accommodations for people who have at least had a full series of pool lessons but please let the leader know early via email so we can help get you prepared. Again, this isn't a class, a clinic, or a CW cruise - just an informal meetup of folks who want to paddle together. You must bring your own gear. There is no gear provided. In order to participate in this Meetup, you must bring your whitewater kayak, paddle, spray skirt, helmet, and PFD.
Please contact the cruise leader directly to sign up for the cruise and find out the logistics for the trip. Particularly for Class III sections of river, the cruise leader may ask you about your paddling experience to make sure that they comfortable leading you on the trip.
