Jacobs Landing to The Narrows

18 08 2009

5:30 wakeup to meet the Collins at their place at 6:30. For some reason I busted my ass to get there by 6:05. Why? Not sure except for I’m horrible with times and dates.

It had been raining the day before so we expected the water to be swift and we were not disappointed. Rapids were a bit quicker, corners a bit hairier, and the normal slow spots where we could coast and enjoy the day sped by too quickly. However the feeling of being on the water at the start of the day with good company was awesome. At one point the river forked and we were not sure which way to go. We were hoping that the two forks joined back up and in time that is exactly what happened. For a bit we didn’t know if we would make it back to our vehicles or float out into the ocean.

We had three NIHR’s (Non Intentional Half Roll) today. Mikey C. had two, and I had one. Marni C. escaped any NIHR’s due to her uncanny balance and command of her vessel.
