No sailing this morning, sometimes work gets in the way of life. I did drop by the basin to check on SPARTINA. The boom tent worked well, keeping the cockpit dry during last night's rains. Like much of the east coast, we have a lot of heat and humidity. That means afternoon thunderstorms. With that in mind I chose to leave the boom tent in place.
If you look just beyond the bridge you will see a freighter passing by. Most of the commercial traffic on the river is barges and tugboats. But there is a fair amount of freighter traffic heading either to the commercial shipyards on the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River or to the terminals on the southern branch.
