The tall ships are staying another day. Thunderstorms kept the vessels in their berth while I motored about the harbor taking it all in. Two late arrivals were the "Tecla" and "Europa". Two vessels "Spirit of Bermuda" and "Urania" did manage to depart for Boston.

My attempt to give the Spirit of Bermuda a sendoff equal to what the LNG supply vessel "Gateway Endeavour" water cannons gave to welcome the Picton Castle. Unfortunatly my pump couldn't match the 950 gallons per second and my nephew Andrew holding the nozzle manages about 1/4 pint per second!
