GoZero Kayak Racing is a series of flatwater kayak races on the Hudson River in New York State. Come on down to the waterfront, kayak and help promote low impact, zero emissions recreation on this historic river. Started as a vision to develop and promote a "quiet harbor" on the Beacon waterfront at the future site of Long Dock Beacon. Foss Group Beacon and Scenic Hudson are partners in developing an eco-hotel, Long Dock, on an existing brownfield site along the Hudson River. They are the founding organizations and presenting sponsors of GoZero Beacon. This race series is organized by and for people who share a vision of active public involvement in and enjoyment of the Hudson River.
