OPP Paddle from Paddle Park, Ediz Hook
January 9, 2009
The paddle began at 7:00 a.m. in pitch dark.
The Cormorants
were already
waking up.
We paddled around and into the yacht harbor where we had a most unusual surprise. Bold as could be was the just
completed Lady Kathryn IV built by Westport. Our group paddled over to the yacht where Jackie offered one of the men
a ride in her kayak which he politely declined. Further conversation revealed that the men were about set sail to
international waters (12 miles offshore) to turn over ownership to the new owners, a Gran Cayman Island entity. It was
such a joyous occasion to realize that there are still people not suffering from the world economic crisis.
Moments later the yacht set sail.
