Perfect Sunday

Sunday brought near perfect conditions, with steady 10 knot breezes from the southwest making for excellent sailing. The cruise terminal was hopping, with three boats at the docks and dredging continuing in between. The tug Sarah Dann joined the dredging operations, having just arrived in New York Harbor this past week escorting the newest Staten Island Ferry to join the fleet (see the tugster blog article for photos).
