Morning at Sebago's City of Water Day In Your Neighborhood event

Despite a thundery, rainy start to the day, we still had a very nice turnout for Sebago's City of Water Day In Your Neighborhood. Unfortunately, after leading one trip and helping a couple more launch and land I finally had to admit that what I've been trying to write off as "allergies" were actually turning into a full-blown cold, plus I broke my camera, so it wasn't the best day I've ever had at the club, but I think everybody who came had a good time (and we were very impressed that so many people came out despite the iffy weather!). Also, unfortunately no pix from Governor's Island, but I'd arranged for Hālāwai to have a table there to talk about the Hōkūle'a Polynesian voyaging canoe's Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, and it sounds like they had an enjoyable day there. So all in all a good weekend! Now if this stupid cold would just go away...
Sebago's entrant in a pre-City of Water Day Cardboard Canoe Race that was staged for the media at the North Cove Marina. Not the fastest entrant, but finished third by virtue of not sinking! Congrats Cardboard Canoe Team!
