Outbound at 0800 this morning, Swan took a turn past the Statue before leaving. Foto by John Watson, who is himself outbound for a while.
I once knew as Fernando Po, a rare place in Africa where Spanish is the official language. I hope the Atlantic Salvor folks got some good fotos of Swan headed out.
Yacht Justice (1930) is an outstanding survivor.
Also, out-of-the-ordinary for the sixth boro is Dewaruci, in port early for OpSail, arriving here on Wednesday. Dewa Ruci appears to be a character in a wayang puppet story. I’m looking forward to their marching band. Over near the Red Hook side, that’s Pioneer.
And this is the start of leg 2 of the Atlantic Cup race, outbound for Newport this morning.
Over a dozen teams have entered boats.
Possible leader, pending resolution of a protest) at the end of leg 1 (of 3) is this boat.
