Good weather forecast for the next week should make for lots of photos; I can’t wait to get out there. Hope to see you on the September 10 Newark Bay Hidden Harbor Tour that leaves from Pier 16, South Street Seaport at 5:30 p.m. I’ll be on the bow, stop by and say hello!

[Editor Note: We will be featuring more race footage and images of the Tugboat Race and Competitions from our talented and generous friends and fans of the Working Harbor tomorrow! (Hint: From Will, Christina, Vlad, Johna, Mitch and Hal) Stay tuned for official race times too!]
