Tugboat Competitions

Posted on February 27, 2013


Sometimes research is incredibly distracting. I got caught up in these videos of tug races and pushing matches on the North River (the southern portion of the Hudson River, alongside Manhattan). I would love to attend this event, or anything similar on the West Coast. Who’s up for the spinach eating contest?
