Sailing Inconceivable #15: Exploring an Abandoned Airport, and Gunkholing Dories and Skiffs

Max and I take a short walk, across the street and through the gate, to one of the most storied places in aviation history. Floyd Bennett Field, New York City’s first commercial airport, is a hidden gem.

Then, back to Sebago Canoe Club for the annual Traditional Small Boat Cruise – Dorries, Sharpies, Skiffs of all kinds – across the bay, and through the marshes, spartina glowing, and creeks flowing.
