Thank you for supporting SEA Paddle NYC and all its beneficiaries.

This will be my 2nd attempt at SEA Paddle NYC. Last year I travelled all by myself from Australia to fulfill my bucket list dream of paddling around Manhattan Island. I was so excited to paddle in this great event as it is not only a great challenge and adventure but also very fulfilling and rewarding to raise funds for such worthwhile causes that I feel passionate about. I was very grateful to be part of Team South Shore Paddle Boards and very appreciative of my beautiful friend Karen Marvin for all her support during my time in New York and making me feel so welcome and safe.

Unfortunately the weather on the day was extreme and conditions dangerous so the paddle was cancelled  for all but the most Elite Paddlers, with many of them pulling out in the tough conditions. 

The incredible colour of the sky with the lightning and dramatic storm clouds, and rough seas was like nothing I had ever seen before!

I was so disappointed! I could not believe it!  But safety is most important. It was such a shame for everyone including the organisers who had worked so hard to organize this event. However, it is great knowing that the funds raised helped so many environment initiatives & families living with autism. I still had an awesome adventure & memorable day with my team as we travelled from Babylon to Brooklyn Bridge and back via boat. 

Fortunately I did go home with a huge smile on my face as a few days later the weather cleared up & I did a "reconnaissance" paddle around the entire Manhattan Island with huge thanks to Manhattan Kayak & SUP! I absolutely loved it! I stopped along the way & took heaps of photos of the scenery, so this year I will be able to resist the urge to take photos and just focus on paddling my heart out!

I am very grateful for any donation you can make to benefit SEA! It is Tax Deductible! Thank you so much!
