Interesting logo . . . must mean this is Leopard 3. Could her determined crew keep her heeled over enough that the 154‘ mast could squeeze under the 127’ Brooklyn Bridge clearance?

Interesting crew . . . must mean Pioneer. Could their efforts and enthusiasm be harnessed to catch the 35-knot Leopard?

Under gray skies that match her colors, Leopard sprinted around the harbor yesterday even before

Pioneer raised her main . . . and they all

headed for a rendezvous over by Ellis Island.

My conveyance and camera platform . . . thanks to the fabulous tours of Working Harbor Committee.  Sign on for a tour soon.

By the way, the BBridge turns 125 this week. Don’t miss the party.
