We had an eventful day yesterday and captured lots of amazing footage! We started out the morning at Scarano's Boatyard in Albany.
Before we left port we had a little fun with Apollonia's delivery tricycle.
Captain John of Solaris gave us a little lesson in tugboats as we left the Port of Albany.
Then Tanya gave us a little history of Castleton and the Castleton-on-Hudson Bridge.
The Apollonia crew was getting a workout this morning beating into a strong headwind. Captain Sam said some of the crew got a little seasick!
Soon the tide turned against them and Apollonia had to anchor. Here is Captain Sam diving in to illustrate the power of the current.
Here's Captain John with a recap of the day. We got some great footage and interviews in Albany and we're looking forward to more as we move south back down the river!
And finally, to end the day, here's a little compilation video from footage we captured yesterday of Apollonia sailing.
We hope you've been enjoying the North Hudson Voyage! For live updates, be sure to follow us on Facebook. And there's still time to donate to support the trip, either by the mile or give what you can.
This Captains' Log is kept by the captains and crew of Solaris and Apollonia and staff of the Hudson River Maritime Museum.
