Midweek roundup

Tuesday and Wednesday brought moderate temperatures, and building westerly winds which made for great sailing up and down the river by Wednesday afternoon. Activity in the city and on the River was subdued in the run up to Labor Day weekend. A pair of Reinauer tugs and the Patrice McCalister were at anchor on the River Tuesday, and they were replaced by the Cape Henry, which came back to River after refueling at the Kirby dock on Staten Island and then spending some time in the Upper Bay. The super-yacht Neninka was back at anchor off 72nd Street after returning from Greenport, NY on the North Fork.
