News from the Fleet

While the leaves changed color, along the waterfront crews planned and fitted out for the annual voyages of vessels determined to follow summer. Once year-round occurrences, today long voyages are usually a seasonal migration taking place between mid-November and mid-December, which is to say, after the hurricane season and before the onset of winter gales. Or at least, that’s the hope. This year is no exception, and we wish fair winds and following seas to all.
