I am sure that most of you North Island paddlers have heard of this weekends accident on the Rangitaiki at "Rock A".
Our condolences go out to those close to Alex and those involved over the weekend.
Lets use this as a reminder that even those "easy" rapids can get the unweary. This group was well versed with the Jeffs run and well trained in the art of rescue. This incident was the worst case senario to an unfortunate and unavoidable situation.

Remember, its summer the rivers are low and those rocks normally covered are now potential pins.

Be safe!!!

See ya Alex safe journey.
