Mark Brenneman will coordinate a Thursday paddle on the Staircase. Contact Mark at email@example.com if you plan on participating.
Sunday paddlers will meet at Pennyfield at 10:00 (equivalent to 11:00 DST) to set shuttle for a run down the Breaks from Violettes Lock. So be prompt, well dressed (temps of air 70 / water 54 degrees predicted), and CCA covid compliant (read the guidelines on the CCA‘s Trips and Events tab)
To see that no-one is left behind on the shuttle, please let me know you‘re coming. //////////// We‘re doing the Pennyfield shuttle as we fear that the C&O Canal which was being drained on Thursday - is no longer even minimally navigable back from Blockhouse Point to Violettes.
Those paddlers willing to commit to attaining back up the Breaks after the run may park directly at Violettes at 10:30. But please let me know your plan.
TBD - The meet-up time is also TBD
If the forecasted rain holds up for Weds night, I’d like to paddle a class 2-3 creek like the Covington or Pohick this Thursday. If interested, Please contact - in advance - Frank Fico - Fico1@netzero.net. He‘ll let you know where and when - if the water level comes up sufficiently.
(Alf‘s name is here as back-stopping this trip - Frank‘s in charge.)

Seneca Landing/Rileys Lock
Sunday Paddle - to avoid 15-30 mph winds on the open Potomac, we‘ll do Seneca Creek - meaning from the Dawsonville Put-in at MD 28 down to Rileys Landing. This part of the trip may involve passing around logjams but getting into the water, so full wetsuits or drysuits are advised.
- - - A less adventurous but totally covid safe option will be for individuals to simply paddle up from Rileys landing to the first rapid just up from River Rd bridge. Current level (12 M Sat) is 129 cfs (min is 85).
We‘ll meet at Riley‘s and work out shuttle details from there. Please let me know if you‘ll be coming. On Sunday, it‘s 703 397-6882.
