Jim finally cleared the Delaware Bay and is now working up the New Jersey coastline. The New Jersey coastline is roughly 130 miles in length and is composed of channels that divide barrier islands into segments. These waters are subject to reversing tidal currents, and are conduits for a large volume of water that flows in and out of the bay/estuarine system. Once he completes this section, he is only 20 miles from Manhattan. But these will be 20 hard miles starting at Sandy Hook and crossing one last open body of water. If Jim averages 30 miles per day for the duration of his row, he could be landing in New York in as soon as 5 days!! But, as we all know, weather will determine if this can happen. Tropical Depression Cindy is making its way northward bringing rain and wind. To what extent this will impact Jim is still unknown. Meanwhile, I am looking into a number of possible landing sites in Manhattan. This is more difficult than I thought it would be, with little public and accessible waterfront. I will be posting more details on this soon. Stay tuned.
