Traffic/Directions: We do not anticipate any road closures or detours on the way to Lower West Peace Boat Launch, however, there will be signage to guide you!
Shaftesbury Ferry Launch: The committee has no jurisdiction over ferry operations, therefore, participants will be launched in waves in between ferry runs. It is very important that you listen to our volunteers, so we can get everyone on the river safely and avoid any incidents with the ferry.
Strong Creek Lunch: Participants will be getting back on the water at the same time. For those that wish to end their journey at Strong Creek rather than Lower West Peace, please note that the committee and volunteers do not have the means to transport anyone from Strong Creek. You will need to make your own transportation arrangements.
Shuttles: The shuttles are used to transport participants from Lower West Peace to Shaftesbury Ferry. Participants drop off their vessels at Shaftesbury Ferry at the time indicated in the participant guide, then head to Lower West Peace to park their vehicle, fill out waivers and sign in. Please note, the shuttles will not be driving over the berm at Lower West Peace to load participants, they will be parked along 93rd street.
