Saturday, August 22, 2015 (All day)

Either participate as a kayaker, or just come out to view and root for the more than 200 paddlers that will take part in this circumnavigation around Manhattan on water event. This 30 mile excursion around Manhattan is not a race. It is a chance for you and the kayakers to socialize, exercise, explore and take pictures.  It is also an opportunity to demonstrate the wonderful water environment of New York that is available to everyone.

The 2015 Manhattan Circumnavigation will take place on Saturday, August 22, 2015 (Rain date: 8/23). Launch at 9:45 AM from Dyckman Street Beach on Hudson River located just north of La Marina Restaurant at 348 Dyckman Street, Inwood (Northern end of Manhattan).

Each summer since 2004 Steve Blumling and Jerry Blackstone have organized a paddle around Manhattan Island: An Annual Manhattan Circumnavigation. In recent years Margrethe Horlyck-Romanovsky and Phil Giller have joined this team. The trip has grown: from 17 paddlers in 2004 to 101 paddlers in 2014.

The Circumnavigation is open to all who qualify; club membership is not required; out-of-towners are welcomed. Kayakers can socialize, exercise, take pictures and explore during this 30 mile excursion. 

Careful planning means that the current helps rather than opposes the paddlers. Safety of a large group is enhanced via general marine radio use; a safety boat escort and Coast Guard notification.
