Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

Our first day got us only as far as the Isle of Shoals, thirteen miles from Newburyport. An ugly southeast swell was rolling the boat uncomfortably and the wind was too light to sail. We cancelled plans to get further on that first day. The boat in the photo is Ascension and belongs to our friend and AYC member, Jonathan Welch, who works part time as a launch driver for Isle of Shoals Star Island Hotel.
