Since most of us in Hoboken don’t have access to the Cornucopia Majesty, we have to make do with other resources. Thanks to the dedicated group of volunteers who operate the Hoboken Cove Boathouse uptown, one doesn’t need a schooner to experience the thrill of the waves. Seven weekends this summer, The Hoboken Cove Boathouse will offer kayaking to locals.
The Boathouse itself is a replica of the original clubhouse built by John Cox Stevens, the founder and first Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, begun in 1844. The kayakers started small in 2003, when they would shuttle kayaks across the river from the Downtown Boathouse in Manhattan. Today, they have 25 kayaks. Plans are in the works to expand into a new facility to utilize the bigger inlet between Hoboken and Weehawken.
Come have a Dark n Stormy in support of the Boathouse at the Madison, on Thursday, June 7th. To find out more, visit: www.hobokencoveboathouse.org.
