    Psst, there is free parking available under the Van Wyck Expressway (just off College Point Blvd), but you would need to get there relatively early (ie. before 8am) even though it's a pretty big lot. Of course, if you can carpool that would be a great idea.

    I'll provide more exact info soon.

      Hi John, so as far as I understand it the team is not racing then, is that correct? and also then you won't have a tent either?

    The free parking under the Van Wyck Expressway is located at the Rodman Gate (Just off College Point Blvd.) From that lot, it's about a 10 minute walk to the boat launch area. Just be sure to get there early and bring plenty of sunscreen and some polarized sunglasses :-)
