Dear 38th Voyagers:
If you have not yet seen this video of yesterday's sail amongst the whales on Stellwagen Bank, including the lowering of a whaleboat, you should:
I have also attached an amazing photograph, taken by Andy Price, of a whaleboat with a whale fluking in front of it.
There are also wonderful photos in the New London Day's photo gallery:
Those in the whaleboat om Fri., July 11, were Sean Bercaw (boatheader), Alex Lawson (after oar), Randy Patterson (tub oar), Mary K Bercaw Edwards (midships oar), Aaron Gralnik (bow oar), and Chris Gauld (boatsteerer oar).
What a pleasure it has been to sail with so many of you!
Mary K. Bercaw Edwards (one of 21 staff sailing deckhands--who are different from the pro crew: we are Mystic Seaport staff who each sail on 1/3 of the transit legs--and one-half of the whaleboat logistics team).
