Race Week Optis

September 12, 2013

As the rest of the day 3 progressed for Jr. Race Week, I moved from the 420 circle to the Optimist circle across the harbor.  Here, junior sailors age 8-13 were competing in the little one design Optis across four separate fleets divided by age group, Red, White & Blue, plus Green fleet for the newbies.  

The breeze had picked up as wind howled across Conanicut Island to deliver gusts around 15 knots for these sailors in the middle of the East Passage.  With racers dropping out left and right, I only caught two and a half races as they called it for the day around 2:30pm.  But there were several troopers out there, hiking hard and handling the heavier air & swell.  They sure put on a great show!

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

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!
