Champlain Canal – Schaghticoke/Troy
June 30, 2015
Mariners are advised that a large, unpowered, makeshift float comprised of interconnected inflatable rafts will be drifting down the Hudson River/Champlain Canal from the southern tip of Campbell Island (near Buoy R “18”) to the Troy Motor Boat and Canoe Club (near Buoy G “1”) starting at 1:00 pm Sunday, July 3rd. This float, an annual excursion of the Troy Motor Boat and Canoe Club, will have limited maneuverability, a large number of passengers and will be accompanied by lifeguard/support boats.
Mariners are to proceed past this float at a “no wake” speed not exceeding 5 mph.
