Yacht Club Ball Floats Away

Karen Schaack sent in this photo taken earlier this week by kayakers who found this large buoy that had been a permanent fixture at the Cornwall Yacht Club for "as long as anyone can remember."  The buoy went missing after Tropical Storm Irene hit the area on August 28th.  The question remains if the large ball can be hauled back from its current resting place.


If you can get it in the water, the rest should be relatively easy.

I say finders keepers. That would make an awesome lawn ornament.

For those of you following this story.. it gets funnier Cara found another buoy. The one at the club is still at the club!
