The First Racecourse Trip of 2015! For the first time in our history, we opened for Spring Break. This has been a warm winter, and today’s high temp was 64 degrees. The Rio Grande was at 600 cfs. and clear, without a breath of wind. While waiting for the arrival of the raft above Saddle Rock rapid, I spotted an otter, and got a photo (not a great one though). It was a drop-dead gorgeous day. Here’s the Consford family, from Keller TX. The trip was guided by “Sancho Panza” Wilson, who is now in her third year of guiding with New Wave, and this was her first solo trip. She did great! Congrats Sancho.
