Hi New York paddlers.
I am a very experienced ocean surf ski paddler from Australia, with over 10 years of competitive ocean surf ski racing. A few weeks ago completed the Molokai race, and this September will be doing the English Channel crossing.
This coming July, I will be in Manhattan, and I wish to circumnavigate Manhattan island around the 4 hour mark.
I have been reading about the currents, and I would like the help of locals or people who have done the paddle, to please give me some advice on:
- Best place to start and finish
- Best time of day
- The right direction
- The rules and regulations on paddling in those busy areas
Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
