Captain’s Comments: All hands seem to be enjoying the workshops and their time on the ship. It’s hard work while we travel, it’s hard work at the festivals. Workshops and small jobs are a pleasant break.  Our time in Buffalo is nearly over, and we can’t say enough about the warm welcome this city has shown us. This has been another great event – a sign of things to come this summer. We have all enjoyed our stay here, including all of the thousands of people who came out to meet us.   Thank you Buffalo!

Position: Alongside Riverwalk Buffalo.

Weather: Warm and humid in the afternoon. Light North/Northeasterly winds
