Twenty rowers set off from the Village Community Boathouse on Pier 40 in three Whitehall Gigs on Saturday, 7/18 bound for Governor’s Island to join the 8th annual City of Water Day. The launch was postponed from 7:30 AM until the next slack tide because of a threat of thunderstorms which was unfortunate because they missed the Cardboard Kayak Race.

After securing the boats in the crowded ebayment near pier 101, VCB volunteers spent the day manning the table talking about VCB programs and mission and schmoozing with fellow rowers, paddlers and others from our waterfront community.

Rowers and paddlers who had traveled to Governor’s Island by boat were invited by MWA to camp on the island for the night. Setting up camp was challenging for some of us city dwellers.
Rowers: Teresa Wang, Cindy Lin, Eric Chan, Joy Yang, Leo Au-Yeung, Anna Juchnicki, Shana Luo, Rene Moreno, Margaret Ho, Kenneth Chuen, Rebecca Poch, Danielle Dai, Jackie Chen, David Kang, Eric Cerny, Tony Fung, Frank, Deborah and Yee Gee Cheng.
