The dates for the intermediate (grade 3 white water) Victorian Safari dates will be Friday 27th September finishing on the labour day long weekend (5-7th Oct). The rivers we hope to paddle are in the Victorian and NSW high country and will probably be be the MItta MItta, Murray and possibly the Goobarragandra at this stage. Although this plan is always water dependent. There are already people interested in going. Expect very cold water and cold camping conditions with mandatory fires. You are expected to be both a member of paddle NSW and RCC to come.
You would need to demonstrate an ability to paddle and self-rescue in grade 3 white water if you are considering coming on this trip. So if we do not know you and you wish to go to Victoria please come to a practice day at Penrith in September. The dates for the practice days are 7th, 14th the and 21st September.
Please contact me if you think you are coming to Victoria with the Grade 3 group.
If you are only interested in paddling more difficult water please e-mail Greg Turner. He might have different dates and venues (possibly Snowy release ???).
