Paddled South from Pier 40 at about 18:15. Released the message just off of Ellis Island at 19:00. Although it threatened to rain and was overcast we stayed dry.
Crossed from Pier 40 and paddled South on the Jersey side of the river. We had to dodge a few ferrys, but otherwise the trip was uneventful.
It was a nice night, but a bit cool once the Sun went down.
