Race Week at the 420 Circle

September 10, 2013

So the culmination of 8 weeks of junior sailing for those sailing on Narragansett Bay happens at Race Week, the NBYA Jr. Olympic Festival that incorporates Club 420s, Optis and Lasers into a three day sailing event!  While day 1 was only half a day of racing this year, and day 2 there was no racing at all due to no wind, heavy fog, and thunderstorm threats, there was beautiful wind and sun for day 3 and I was out on the water to capture all the action!  

First stop was the Club 420 circle where the small Laser fleet was also competing.  The wind started out of the northwest for the most part, shifting more west/southwest as the day went on.  It just kept building and these sailors kept having more and more fun!  With about 50 entries and two divisions, I'm happy to report Wickford Sailing took home the win with a 1st in Division 1!  This plus the Wickford Sailing second place in 420s for the overall summer season felt pretty good coming from a small program.

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.
