The attached file contains info on Monday's paddle down and up Erie Canal Locks 6-2 around Cohoes Falls. Weather forecaste is looking good.
There is no limit on the number who can attend, since I was told last year that kayakers can just raft up if there are more paddlers than ropes, and that the more paddlers present...the less likely they will put another type of boat in with us. The locks are HUGE, they were designed to hold large barges. We discovered last year that we didn't even need to hold on going down; I don't know about going up never having done it; only that Alan Mapes of Atlantic kayak Tours has taken groups of paddlers in both directions. I've emailed him about what to expect going up the locks, and I'll forward it when he replies.
