NYC cannonball run ??
anybody know anything about this ? went to the site and all it says is 11:00 saturday. Nothing about how to register, nothing about cost. how does it run, from statue north under train bridge and down east river under Brooklyn bridge back to statue ??
What if the bridge is close ? aren't there no wake zones around some of those bridges on the east river ? anybody know about this race, I would like to know the details. Thanks..

Yes others missed the right at the ER. It was a free for all, should have been a meeting prior to discuss the route that would be taken etc

How can you race through the Harlem/East Rivers without pissing a whole bunch of people off and capsizing some kayaks and sculls?

I'm pretty sure there are some no-wake zones under some of those bridges on the E.R. also. As far as the Kayaks, if your not in a no wake zone as long as your 100' away they are there at their own risk.
So Scott, the big question, are you doing it this year ? I submitted a contact us form from their web-site, didn't get anyting back. Doesn't sound very well organized at all. How much was it ?

The no wakes are what I meant about pissing people off... as far as the kayaks, sculls, canoes, etc. the law may be one thing, but common courtesy and common sense are another.
I ride there often- it is not the place to hold a race unless arrangements can be made accordingly in advance.
