Shippy’s Log, August 21st

Notes on the Community Rowing expedition of 08/21/2010

High Tide. N breeze at 4 or 5 and rising. We followed the shoreline to stay out of the wind. Decamped (degigged?) at Sandy Beach fully prepared to oar sail back. Later in the midle of the river with oars out the wind died. We drifted as 8 tiny waterspouts approached from the South and became 8 jet skiis screaming North in single file. Waterbikers as in Easy Rider but more neoprene than leather. Meanwhile in the other lane the sloop Woody Guthrie plowed sedately south. We rowed. All was well.
