Release Date 9/17/2006
Released this message on my way to do a swim support for the CIBBOWS group. A large group of 16 paddled down from Manhattan to help with a swim race across the Narrows.
I released the bottle just before 11:00 right in the middle of the channel on a pretty good ebb tide.
It was yet another really beautiful day perfect for a paddle down from the city. We left 56th St at 08:15, but had to make a few stops to pick-up other kayakers.
The race was a lot of fun, and we were treated to cookout afterward. We started back around 15:30 and reached 56th St around 18:30.
Truth: The Snooze alarm is a dangerous thing.
