Staten Island Circumnavigation
August 22, 2015 @ 7:00 am - August 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
New York City’s *other* great circumnavigation — Staten Island! This paddle is perhaps our region’s most diverse in terms of natural and historical sights, and water conditions. We’ll do it in two days, with camping, to best appreciate the experience.
While this approximately 45-mile trip is not an Olympian endeavor, it does require some athletic endurance and ability to press on despite blisters and scrapes. Some of us have done it in a single day. The second day is much easier.
There is a chance that we will further segment the trip, but don’t count on it. Also don’t count on these estimates to be precise — with a group, schedules are fluid and all that really matters is catching the current at critical points.
We have space for 20 people and several guides. Students, volunteers, select community groups, and supporters have priority. A primary goal of this trip is orientation so that volunteers will know where to bring kids in the future.
