The morning started off looking very threatening, but the weather held up until late afternoon. As to the Tugboat Races, well, you just have to be there to really have the experience.
Here is our first set of photos, a lot more to follow… and a video or two. Thanks to Capt John Doswell and everyone at the Working Harbor Committee for making this all possible. And, a special thanks to Huntley Gil and the Fireboat John J. Harvey for having Phyllis and me on board to photograph the event.
That’s all for now. Phyllis and I have a lot more to come.
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!
