RI State Championship

June 05, 2014

High School Sailing for Rhode Island culminated in the State Championship hosted out of Fort Adams by teams from Rogers and Middletown.  Twelve high school teams competed on a sunny May afternoon with just about the most perfect conditions anyone could ask for!  There was a calm consistent southerly rolling through the harbor, and a warm sun overhead.  Racing started around 3:30pm and there was only a few good hours left in the afternoon for racing.  With a fleet comprised of boats from St. Georges and sails from other schools, boats sailed windward / leewards with a gate twice around.  Five races were squeezed in for both A and B fleets, which was rather impressive for such a short race day.

In the end, Moses Brown came out on top by one point, with Middletown in second, and North Kingstown in third separated by Rogers in fourth place by just one more point.  While this event wasn't important for any regional rankings, it was a terrific event full of friendly interstate competition.  It was a beautifully warm and fun day of sailing, and I can’t wait for more days like this as the summer arrives!

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!
