Boy Scout Troop 270
Pembroke, NH

The chart image to the right shows the track of the ship for the sail today.

Boy Scouts came aboard for an all day sail from New Bedford State Pier, out into Buzzards Bay and back to Billy Woods Wharf by 3pm.

The group then walked 1.2 miles along the waterfront to Taber Park where they camped in the shaddow of Fort Rodman, an historic fort designed by Robert E. Lee, who was an engineer before he became a famous general in the Civil War.


Community Boating Center
New Bedford, MA

During the evening, the ship set sail from Billy Woods Wharf, in the south end of New Bedford, with the Community Boating Center aboard for a fundraising event from 5-7pm. We sailed in fine company with people who are taking action to provide great learning experiences for children that will help shape their lives.

The picture below right is "After-8," an a cappella group that sang during the sail. It's great to have music aboard!

The CBC offers programs for young people in the community from a boat house in Taber Park and a new location over in "The Cove."

The weather has held for us even as we sail into the Fall!
