HUDSON THIS WEEKEND
Sue and I are going out today (Sat.) We will most likely launch from Kingston Point between noon and 1 and probably paddle north.

- Hi Ivan, Sounds good to me. The Hudson has been like glass since the wind died down and the water level seems higher than ususal. So how about launching and heading to Black Creek since we might be able to paddle further into it than ususal. We could launch either from Esopus Lighthouse Park/Scenic Hudson and head south, or from Highland and head North. High tide is 5:18 today and 6:10 tomorrow Sunday. Black Creek might be a little far from Highland, but the sights from there are interesting even if we don't make it to the Creek.
Myles Gordon, who used to run the sailing school from the Rondout, is now into white water kayaking, he might be able to hook you up with some white water paddlers if he is in town.
- Diane, I think we both replied to Ivan at the same time. KGN Point is fine with me. Even with dry suits, in colder weather & infrequent boat traffic I feel more comfortable paddling in a group. DianeD
