After two highly successful rounds of public kayaking events in Stuyvesant Cove this summer, this event series is drawing to a close on Sunday August 10. This event is completely free, and you can sign up on Eventbrite for your 20 minute slot here.
You will need to be 18 or older, or else accompanied by a parent or guardian, know how to swim (although life jackets will be provided) and sign insurance waivers. If you can print them out and sign them before you arrive, you’ll be able to get on the water that much faster (links to download the waivers can be found on the Eventbrite ticket page).
Boats and gear are being provided by the Long Island City Community Boathouse (LICCB), and the event is a joint project of LICCB, the New York City Water Trail Association, and UrbanSwim, in conjunction with the Lower East Side Ecology Center and the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club and with the support of Solar 1, and NYCEDC.
Kayaking is great exercise, sustainable transportation and a chance to get a brand new perspective on our city. See you on Sunday, the forecast looks gorgeous!
