Sea Scout Ship 6 out of Norwalk, Ct. successfully competed in and completed
the venerable, annual 'Race to the Vineyard'. This annual distance classic is
240 miles long and 40% is in open water. Totally becalmed on two seperate
occassions we drifted with zephers and tides for over 10 hours. But the crew
hung tough and finished the race. That in itself is a true accomplishment.
Total time on board from dock to dock was over 64 hours. No silver this time
but a victory none the less!
Ya gotta leave da dock to be SEA scouts. USMMA......Turn right out of CT. (or
Starboard or West).....turn Left before bridge (or to port or South) Rember
