I’m studying Spanish with Rosetta Stone and enjoying new concepts.  “Anteojos de sol” is a Spanish word for “sunglasses,” literally “in front of the eyes, for the sun,”  which is fun to say, especially with the “j” pronounced as “h.”  In my area today, “no necesito anteojos de sol” because  it’s overcast gray.  Capt A. N. O’Nymous generously provided a sudden demand for “shades” which I pass along to you.


Warming up?  Reaching for your anteojos de sol?  Drop a few ice cubes in that coffee?


Take a dip after work?  Istria looks pretty pretty for a 45-year-old Italian vessel gussied up in the colors of the house of orange, eh?


Less colorful and bright . . .  but I’ll keep the sunglasses on . . . it’s Trafalgar, ex-Lady Alma of the Humber, although I haven’t found a launch date.

Many thanks to Capt  O’Nymous for these bright treats.


I’m always interested in collaboration, especially if any vessels previously working in the sixth boro turn snowbird and head for the tropics.   Come to think of it, Nieve Pájaro


might be a new identity just aching to emerge from this Bronx river icebound Osage.


Thank for sharing, Cap.

The first four fotos here come thanks to Marian Hyman, who took them from the pier at 69/70th Street.  Not a hint of the froth and exhaust to come until  . . .

the signal comes, and then there are

pair matches as well as

whole field headed south to the finish line through silt that has floated down from every creek within the entire watershed.

This foto is mine.  Notice the man with the camera above and behind the right side of the crewman about to throw line.

The photographer is David Boone, and here’s his view of the events.  I was just off camera extreme left, standing just beyond the far side of the green tent.  Check out David’s fantastic artwork here.

David and others like bowsprite do watercolors;  actually every boat during the race was dabbling with

water colors.
