Released off of Riverside Park in the Hudson River in South Running current, but wind from the South, so it was holding steady in the middle of the river when I last saw it.
I was doing a trip for a group of artists from the Kitchen http://www.thekitchen.org/. They were a good group young and enthusiastic.
There was a very heavy storm that we had to wait for before we started the trip, so we had to wait for it to blow over before we could start. This caused us to miss the current, so we paddled into an increasing ebb on the way out and didn't get too far North.
It was amazing to see how the day cleared-up in just 30 minutes. From torrential rain with 50 yard visibility to clear and sunny.
Truth: Art Makes the World a Better Place.
