On Saturday, a short crew of VCB rowers delivered Whitehall Gig JML to Sebago Canoe Club in Jamaica Bay, a 25 mile voyage. The combination of the Northwind and the ebb tide made for a great sail. At several points, our speed was clocked at 8+ knots. After passing Coney Island beach, we turned north into the wind, which was blowing at 15 mph, Ingo appeared with the chase boat and towed us the rest of the way north through Jamaica Bay to Sebago. Thanks to our intrepid crew, Dave Clayton, Marcel Dejean, Rob Buchanan, Sally Curtis. Special thanks to Ingo Gunther for saving the day!
