Sailing with SUNY Cadets

At SUNY Maritime College, we welcomed Professor Ian McCurdy aboard for a chat.  This was a special occasion, as his father designed the Harvey Gamage.

Later that afternoon, 11 SUNY cadets came aboard for an overnight sail north to Oyster Bay on Long Island.  Students and crew enjoyed an Italian feast (made by our amazing cook, Shanna) before standing overnight anchor watches together.  In the morning, we sailed back down the sound through a rainstorm, weaving through a few regattas with what seemed like hundreds of sailboats all around us.

Despite the rain, we couldn’t have asked for a better sail.  It’s hard to care about the weather when there’s bacon!
