Towing the rafts back to Pier 96

Riverkeeper's New York WaterFest. We had great luck with the weather. In the morning the “Fletcher” followed the start of the kayak race with guests and press aboard. Then she escorted the raft paddle from Pier 96 to North Cove. After the awards ceremony she towed the rafts (17) back to Pier 96. The day worked out wonderfully.
