SECTIONS/TRIPS - descriptions of suggested trips on the Waterways. When used in rivers, the TRIPS are in order, source to sea, and called SECTIONS because they divide the river into sections. Check the Access Point to ensure that the Sections are continuous. The Blue Dot is positioned in proximitiy of the proposed TRIP and is not meant to be a particular point on the map. When the Trips are on lakes and open water, a Trip leader would need to research the best route from Access Point to destination, as weather, swell and tides can play a major influence on the progress of a trip. In some cases, the route is marked by a blue line to provide an indication of the destination but this line MUST NOT be used as a charted route.
