NYCkayaker Paddle from Red Hook to Brooklyn Bridge
Tue Aug 12 00:00:40 EDT 2008
On 8/16 we are doing another free kayaking and rowing day at the Brooklyn
Bridge Park in Dumbo. The last event went great and was very busy. We need
volunteers to help with the next event this Saturday.
This link might not work after email translation, but just google
"Brooklyn Bridge Park"
We already have some boats from the Downtown Boathouse at the park, and we
will bring more boats up from the Red Hook Boaters for the day.
The program starts at 11:30. If you want to help just meet us at the park
at 11:30, or you can kayak up with us from Red Hook.
The trip up should be fun we will paddle right by two of the Waterfalls,
and what will eventually be the new Brooklyn Bridge Park in the East
River. We will also hit the Boathouse Dock at Governor's Island on the way
The schedule is as follows:
-10:00 Meet In Red Hook.
-10:30 Start paddling North.
-11:30 - 3:30 Run the free paddling event in Brooklyn in Dumbo.
-3:30 start heading back South.
-4:00 Stop at Kayak dock on Governor's Island. You can tour the island,
rent a bike, or just hang out. If you have never been there, you will
really enjoy it. Check out their website for details. www.govisland.org
-5:00 Head back to Red Hook.
-5:30 Get to Red Hook and put the Boats away.
If you are interested in helping shuttle boats, please email me directly:
firstname.lastname@example.org. I am primarily looking for people to take our boats,
so you do not need any of your own equipment.
If I can't find enough paddlers I will just take the boats by car, but
that seems a shame when the current works for a paddle.
