Re: Hell Gate

The Admiral and I are planning a paddle around Manhattan Island this season. We will take our 18' 6" Sawyer Charger, the boat we use to paddle around Cape Ann in the Blackburn Challenge race out of Gloucester, MA. Our biggest problem is deciding which direction we want to go. Timing is flexible. We can paddle @ 5 mph in still water. Finding a place to launch and leave our car for the day is a problem, too.

We are considering starting and finishing at Columbia University's dock and paddling ccw. We would start very early on a Sunday and head down the Hudson to return back up the East River.

Any suggestions will be welcome.
