Thanks to Tillerman for this exquisitely beautiful combination of surfing and sailing; check the story at Proper Course. I haven’t seen a sail on the harbor in months. Maybe one or another has been there and I missed it. I do miss seeing sailing craft though. So here’s some from last summer to compensate. Rosemary Ruth!


Shearwater, below, heading up toward the Buttermilk Channel, started life in Maine. Check here for a fantastic update on the disappearance of the Red Hook sugar mill, just aft the mainmast of Shearwater.


About 30 years senior, Richard Robbins, below, started life in South Jersey.



Then there are mystery craft like this one with its tug sidekick passing the Winter Garden,



Or this one with hull painted to resemble gun ports. Anyone identify these?
