Sailfest 2012 was an experience to never forget. The day started with an adventurous 1.5 mile walk from my apartment to the beach (adventurous because I don’t walk more than 5 feet without complaining, much less in the hot hot summer sun by myself). Well, I finally arrived on my spot on the beach that I claimed as my own while I waited for the ships to come in. Two hours after the original start time, moments before I was about to walk home, I saw a small sail boat round the corner into the Thames River. Could it be? Were more behind them? YES! There were! Camera ON! This one is the Coast Guard Eagle, one of the many awesome ships to come through that hot summer Connecticut day.
