The very last weekend of August, one of the most beautiful celebrations of classic boats was held out of Newport Harbor in foggy and rainy conditions. The Museum of Yachting's Annual Classic Yacht Regatta boasted several classes with boats ranging from 20 feet to 50 feet in length. Canvas sails, varnished wood spars, teak decking... it's a gorgeous regatta that I love to see every year.
This year, I was on the water for a race that started in Newport harbor and went around Conanicut Island. In swell and chop, plenty of fog and threatening rain, it was still a ton of fun! I am especially happy of some shots I got of Cara Mia as she sailed right by the photoboat!
