Threatening clouds sending boats racing south on the East River past between the Upper East Side and Roosevelt Island.
“I shot Racing the Storm New York City as small craft rushed south in the East River,”a scary thunderstorm overhead. Black clouds ready to eat up Manhattan and the boats along with it.” – Deborah Julian
“As frightening as that storm was from indoors, I can’t imagine how intimidating it must have looked to boats racing away to get away from it.”

Danger of Being on the Water When a Thunderstorm Hits
When you are on a boat in the water, thunderstorms can be very dangerous. If you are close to shore, the lightning could potentially hit the land and travel through the ground to your boat. If you are far from shore, the lightning could strike your boat and electrocute everyone on board. In either case, it is important to stay safe during a thunderstorm.
If you are on a boat in the water and a thunderstorm starts, head for shore as quickly as possible. If you can’t get to shore, find a sheltered area on the boat where you will be less likely to be hit by lightning. Stay away from metal objects, including the mast, and avoid touching anything wet. If possible, stay below deck until the storm passes.
Thunderstorms can produce large waves and strong winds, so it is important to be prepared for rough conditions. Make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket and that all of the boat’s safety equipment is in good working order. Pay attention to the weather forecast and avoid sailing in storms if possible.
Thunderstorms are a danger for boats in the water, so it is important to take precautions and stay safe during a storm. By following these tips, you can help ensure a safe voyage.
