Release Date 4/9/2006

Released this message off of the Channel between Robert Moses State Park and Jones beach as we proceeded on our Montauk to Brooklyn paddle. It was a bright beautiful spring day. Released it at 12:38 (the time is wrong on my camera)

We had a 5-10kt tailwind from the south east and were slightly assisted in our paddling by being able to surf gentle swells.

The tide was still ebbing out of the inlet, and it wasn't clear if the bottle was going to be taken further out the sea or down the coast.
