Free Kayaking & Paddling Memorial Day!
By Ilija Sekulovski
This Memorial Day, May 30th, everyone is invited to come have a paddle around and take in the view from Hallets Cove.
Flotillas are departing from Socrates Sculpture Park Beach into Hallets Cove, from 1PM to 4PM.
As you see the sigths, you'll be able to paddle near East River, taking in some nice spots along the Western Queens Coast.
The informal outing is sponsored by Astoria Boaters and LIC Community Boathouse, and will go ahead as scheduled if the weather permits.
Minors under 18 are to have a legal guardian present, however all ages are welcome. You don't need any experience and there's no registration.
Just grab a friend and go over to the beach at 31st Avenue and Vernon Boulevard and sign up. It is a first come first served kinda sign up.
The agencies are also looking for any volunteers available to help out with registration and/or accompanying beginners.
