For City of Water Day, with the help of great volunteers, we executed multiple events in spite of morning thunderstorms. Intrepid volunteers stuck around and when the weather cleared around 10:30, we offered remaining morning guests a paddle to Newtown Creek and back before setting up for the afternoon events--walkups at Anable Basin and Gantry Plaza State Park. We welcomed hundreds of new and not-so-new kayakers, who celebrated our City of Water by paddling up a storm! We even hosted one great dog at Anable Basin.

Thank you Volunteers! Last Saturday's official Opening Day 2015 was a fun day of trips to and from Hallet's Cove. In between we ran a day of community sponsored kayaking at the cove. At the end of the day volunteers enjoyed a tasty Mediterranean Grill by Chef Bob Hartling! It was exciting to meet volunteers from the fledgling Stuyvesant Cove Boathouse. They volunteered with us as one step in many that will eventually lead to a functioning boathouse on Manhattan's East Side! On Sunday, LICCB volunteers were treated to morning paddles and an afternoon Luau at Sebago [...]

We welcomed lots of first-timers, veteran kayakers, toddlers, teens, plus even a few dogs to the pleasures of being on the water. Mini-trips just outside the basin gave LIC paddlers a taste of the East River guided by our on-water volunteer squad. Shortly after 6p, river trip goers enjoyed unique views of Manhattan Henge--when the [...]
