Sail Through Newport Harbor

Over the past couple of month, between watching the Newport to Bermuda start and the AC45s racing for the America's Cup, I've been visiting Newport Harbor an awful lot, both by land and sea.  And of course, I had my camera with me every time!  While I was taking pictures of the races and competitors, I was also snapping away at passing spectators, charters, and day sailers.  I liked a lot of these shots just as much as the regatta photos, and wanted to share them with you all.

To let everyone know, just about all the boats pictured below are available for charter!  Adirondack II can be booked through Sailing Excursions, Aquidneck through Sight Sailing of Newport, and American Eagle (a 12 Metre with America's Cup history) through America's Cup Charters.  A couple other charter companies I've heard about include 12 Meter Charters and Seascope Yacht Charters.

Be sure to check out my Cruising & Casual Racing section of my Photography Catalog for more images like these, including photos of cruising boats, day sailors, charters, and casual summer racing series!
How I got these shots:  Nikon D80, Nikkor 70-200mm VRII
