September 19 Speaker Event: NY City Captains & Currents

What Boaters Should Know presented by Captain Aaron Hilliard

Interaction between small and large vessels in New York Harbor and handling the unique Hudson/East River currents can be a frightful event for the unknowing… But it doesn’t have to be!  The discussion will include information about what recreational boaters should know, be doing, and not doing when operating in near to close proximity to NYC commercial vessel traffic, and will include understanding what the commercial captains’ goals are and their assumptions about your actions.  Also, if you are not familiar with how New York City currents impact your boat and your planned trip, stay tuned.  The discussion will include “Good to know!” information about the NYC currents that most recreational boaters misuse and misunderstand.

Captain Aaron Hilliard is a graduate of Greenwich High School, and has skippered the SoundWaters schooner in our local waters. 

 Currents vs Battery high tide

7 pm ~ Usual light refreshments will be served.
