Dr. Roberta E. Zlokower
August 22, 2011



It was clear, non-humid, and television talk of an impending storm, end of the week, sent me straight to North Cove Marina and the gorgeous Shearwater, an 82' sailing yacht built in 1929. I enjoyed white wine and a cool breeze, chatting with Captain Dave about the round-the-clock construction on One World Trade. Once the sails were hoisted, we glided quietly by Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, larger cruise boats, ferries, tiny sailboats, and soaring seagulls.

Tonight's spectacular sky was so brilliantly painted, that the crew had their own cameras aimed at the shifting patterns of color and clouds. The deep blue waters sparkled in the setting sun and glistened in the approaching moonlight. The Shearwater guests visibly unwound throughout the evening, while I was thrilled to explore new techniques to capture the twilight skyline. After the sail, I enjoyed a salad and wine spritzer at the water's edge.

Call the Shearwater office at 212.619.0907, and reserve space for you and your friends on their Afternoon, Sunset, Moonlight, or Brunch Sails. Tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com!
