Another Wednesday Night

Another Wednesday Night

June 29, 2012

Wednesday Night Racing out of Wickford Harbor!  I look forward to this gathering of friends, family, and sailors just about every week!  Compared to the previous week of heavy fog, this evening proved to be gorgeous with a wonderfully golden sun and a light breeze.  I was out sailing on Papa again with my parents and some friends.  We didn't have the best start, but held as much of our position as we could for the first leg.  Our downwind leg was terrific!  We managed to pass two competitors and put a great amount of distance between ourselves and the back half of the fleet.  Of course, rounding the leeward mark in fourth did not mean we would finish in fourth.  Our poor and heavy one-sailed Nonsuch was no match for the lighter jibbed boats on the last leg, pushing us to finish in about 6th.  Be sure to check out my previous Wednesday Night blog post for more reading!

As always, more photos can be seen on my website.  If you're a participant, be sure to check out the Wed Night Racing 2012 Viewing Gallery for all the photos I have of you (purchasing options available)!  To view my best selections from the night included in my Photography Catalog, check out the Sailing & Nautical gallery.
How I got these shots:  Nikon D80, Nikkor 70-200mm VRII

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.
