Come Tugboat Race day, I seldom (read: never) have time to take photos of the event and I like many of you, look forward to seeing all the photos from all our water-folk friends and family.

Our good friend Vladimir Brezina of Wind Against Current was on the Spectator Boat with more than 400 Tugboat Race enthusiasts (and me!), racing on the North River right alongside the tugs who churned up the Hudson with their might.

He has generously has shared some of his gorgeous captures of the day with us. Thanks Vlad!
