Arctic Scout Thank You Public Relations Cruise
|GLACIER SOCIETY OPERATIONS LOG 77 SEPTEMBER 9 2013
The Arctic Scout has entered Delaware Bay after a successful visit in New York Harbor and a stop at Cape May USCG Base. A welcome respite it was and the USCG Team was very hospitable, offering us full use of the base facilities. We stocked provisions, hit the hot showers, and hosted visitors from the base, active and retired and family. Visitors included ex-Wind class Icebreaker sailors and Deep Freeze participants. BZ to Cape May TRACENWe write while underway steering 330 M making 9.2 KTs. at 1600 RPM.
Mark Solimando has the CON. Weather continues to be perfect, glassy sea, little wind, sunny sky! We are headed to USCG Curtis Bay where we picked up the near scrapped ASB, now the pristine ARCTIC SCOUT!Stewart Honeycutt and Don Bruska have made the arrangements for our arrival 08:30 Monday morning.
