|From Comorant Launch|
Yesterday, Cormorant, a 14 ft New York Whitehall, built by VCB volunteers was launched at Dumbo Cove. More than 50 volunteers worked over seven weeks to complete the project–thanks to each and every one of you, and special thanks to our last-minute, walk-on artist, Ayhan Batuk, who did a masterful job of lettering, illustration, and Samoan-style line drawing. A huge thank you also goes out to Brooklyn Bridge Park for providing such a great building space.
On Wednesday the boat will be moved up to Prospect Park for the summer rowing season there–every Saturday from 12-4, June through the end of August, launching from the boat ramp at the western end of the lake. Please come row it there! And plenty of volunteer opportunities there, too–please let us know if you are interested.
