It was an impressive little flotilla that took over Valentino Beach in Red Hook. VCB invaded Hometown BBQ and Steve’s Key Lime Pies, chilled out for a while, and then went to visit the Statue. We also got to see a bit of the sailing regatta going on off Ellis Island on the homeward leg, while being guarded by the Coast Guard (see photos).
The post row chit chat at the boathouse included discussion of a possible row up to Misawa in Edgewater for poke and tempura (yes, we go where the food is!). More to follow on that front.
Thanks again to the experienced rowers for being good hosts and role models for the newbie paddlers.
Thanks to all the VCB rowers and coxswains without whom we couldn’t have run such an outing — 4 boats and 22 rowers evenly split between VCB regulars and the Morgan Stanley dragon boat team.
