EpiLog: East Hartford to Hudson

As any experienced volunteer with the Half Moon knows, Voyages of Discovery actually begin long before the students step on board. A great deal of preparation goes into any trip aboard a sailing vessel. With the 2009 Fresh River Voyage of Discovery and a successful week of dockside programs behind us, we must return to the Hudson River to continue our quadricentennial celebrations.

If one follows a Voyage of Discovery by reading the Daily Log, then perhaps one might call the account of the subsequent voyage home... the EpiLog!
