Ready to set sail

Saturday morning, July 16, 2011. A line forms to get on board the Niagara (foreground) as sailors from the ship untie the ropes (bottom-center). The Lynx is moored just behind the Niagara; she will board day-sailors soon after the  Niagara departs the dock at the DECC.  (click pic for larger version)
