Caught without my camera as a fabulous parade of paddlers - most standing, many in kayaks made its way north with the flood tide above the GW Bridge on a beautiful late summer morning, heading into a soft northerly. Maybe I should do it in my Walker Bay 8' rowboat? 26 miles round Manhattan. The currents had better be right. Organized by SeaPaddleNYC, the whole flotilla looked great - with well-marked escort boats.
