On the morning of Day 5 we left the Peekskill Yacht Club in thick fog. Rowing along the Eastern shore, we entered the north end of Haverstraw Bay. This is a big, wide part of the river, under foggy conditions, we couldn’t see to the other side. Our official striped jerseys were getting a bit “ripe” so we chose to wear the red Casino di Venezia T-shirts on day 5.
In the above photo you can see Vittorio rowing a-poppa (on the raised deck at the back), Chris in his black Stetson, Enzo is in front of Chris and you can barely see his signature black vest that he wore each morning, and Bepi is at the front of the gondola, wearing his “Geronimo head band”.
