On Saturday, August 26, kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards are all invited to join Visit Montgomery County and the Amsterdam Rotary as we launch from the Aqueduct Boat Launch at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site and travel east along the Mohawk River, through Locks 12 and 11, for a special paddle down river that concludes at Port Jackson in Amsterdam.
Check-in will begin at 8am at the Schoharie Crossing Boat Launch. Participants can drop their kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, and then park at Lorenzo’s Southside, near Port Jackson, with shuttle service provided back to the boat launch. A post-event lunch will be available for participants at Lorenzo’s Southside.
Kayak rentals are available for participants who may not have their own boat, and each registration includes a raffle ticket for the chance to win a kayak.
