“The paddles are poised for boaters to glide more easily onto Newtown Creek with the North Brooklyn Boat Club.
The club launched a floating dock this weekend in its interim space on Ash Street by the Pulaski Bridge, so the group’s 20 kayaks, canoes and rowboats can more swiftly slide onto the waves. … Anyone can join the group — which typically has three weekly rides on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays — by signing up online and paying $30 to the club and $30 to the American Canoe Association, he said. The 70-person club, which is working to expand membership, began its rides from the Ash Street slice of land earlier this summer. The group keeps updated ride times on its website (from two-hour trips to 14-mile journeys) and will likely continue boating into October, Rasmussen said.”
