    It takes a great deal of dedication to get out of bed so late at night, and then rush to get dressed for a chilly autumn night on the water, or assisting colleagues.
    Such commitment and sacrifice does not go unnoticed by appreciative supporters, and the crew is to be commended.

  2. CelticMan says:

    Agreed.
