This week’s highlight was the 223 foot “Super Yacht Archimedes” passing through the KVK on her way to Southampton (UK). She is owned by the founder of the Hedge Fund “Renaissance Technologies”. The usual parade of tug boats and a RoRo topped off the week.

Monday the SUNY Maritime training ship Empire State sailed out of NY Harbor on their annual cruise.

I was fortunate to be invited by Bjoern Kils to come out on his NY Media Boat to photograph the sailing. As a thunderstorm moved in when we were sailing, we were invited to sail on the yacht “Sean Shipco” to escort the ship out to sea.

A big thank you to Bjoern Kils and Captain Eric of NY Media Boat, and to Sean Shipco for this experience.

Spotting on, John Skelson.
