River paddling thru meanders

Understanding how water flows will enhance your paddling fun.
Getting hung up on sandbars and silt deposits can be annoying.

Staying on the ""outside"" edge of a bend will help a paddler
maintain momentum thru the twists and turns on the river.

Helicoidal Flow : a corkscrew movement in a meander
This is what moves material from the Outside of a bend
and deposits it on the Inside of the next bend.

Next time out - pay attention to the flow.
