I spent a few hours shooting this week and wondering who will win the Tugboat Races this year. There are quite a few large new boats in NY Harbor this year; will it be one of them?
I finally got a good photo of Sabine, a tug chartered to McAllister. I kept missing her or capturing in bad light. Also, photographed Pelham, Henry Marine’s tug, headed for the Tappan Zee project; and got Vane’s Red Hook.
This weekend will be a busy one with a Hidden Harbor Tour Saturday on Circle Line. The 22nd Annual North River Tugboat Race & Competition will be held on Sunday. Spectators can watch the race close-up on the Circle Line Spectator Boat. Activities start at 9:30. Competitions will also be held on Pier 84 (right next to Circle Line).
Hope to see everyone there!
This is the last weekend to see my photo exhibit, “Tugboats, Workhorses of NY Harbor” on the Historic Lighthouse Tender “Lilac” located at Pier 25, at the foot of N. Moore St in Manhattan. I plan on being there for a while Sunday afternoon.
See you “ShipSpotting”…
