Sun, Apr 20 2003 - Beginner kayaking on the Cartecay (View Original Event Details)|

The trip went well, and everyone survived! We had some
good runs down the rapids, and not too many swims. It
was a bit cold - full wetsuits were needed and the outfitter only had ones without arms (farmer john type suits). A recommendation for anyone going in the future at this time of year is to find (or rent) a full-length 3/2 mil wetsuit from somewhere before going, if they get cold easily.
The outfitter is very nice, and actually gave us not
just one guide, but two others to help out, so it was
essentially a 1-1 guide-student ratio.
The guide helped with instruction as well.
