Weekend Late January / Early February 2017
Ascent of the Wanganui, NZ
Possible dates incl Wellington Anniversary or Waitangi weekend
Starting at Wanganui travelling upstream to Pipiriki.
Campsites incl motorcamp at Aramaho, DOC shelter at Pipiriki, Jerusalem quarry
A one way trip, so you’ll need a roadcrew.
river levels are likely drop in February due to usual seasonal variation.
Initial thoughts are to travel as a group using light tinnys or RIB’s capable of planning 15Kts+.
Cellphone coverage is limited so VHF reccomended
Minimum equiptment incl oars, lifejackets, towrope, bailer
Strictly speaking this is not a Seagull adventure, However, this could be used as a reconnaissance & planning mission for a later seagull adventure descending the river
