Low water at the Battery was at 11:30.
We launched about 10:00AM into a strong Ebb, and paddled against it up to Castle Clinton to see if there was any tide race waves to play in.
There were just a few small ones because the tide was on neaps and the wind was not against it, so after a bit of surfing we peeled off for a trip south.
We want to the very fancy golf course in Bayone. Its private members only and the emphasize its accessible by private boat or helicopter. They don't quote the price, but the Internet has it as $150,000 initiation fee and $18,000 a year. Its probably $200 a round as well so a bit rich for my blood.
But I guess that's a deal since this article has Liberty National Course Initiation fee at $450,000, and a wait list!
|Since we were on the golf course I had a shot with lunch!|
The wind really picked-up like 15 knots from East so the initial part of the ride home was a real slog, but eventually we got out in the current.
We heard on the radio that two barges had come loose and we watched the Army Corps of Engineers boat go out and collect them and pull them in toward Red Hook. The mooring ball was still on the bow of one of them, so the Anchor cable must have just broken off.
Truth: The Rich get Richer.
