Sailing Practice with NK

May 21, 2013

NK Sailing has been getting a lot of attention lately!  The high school sailing team qualified for Nationals this year for the first time in team history!  In my day the team had come close but this time these sailors actually got the chance to fly across the country for the ISSA High School Double Handed Championship in Chicago!  After several days of racing in seriously heavy air, they ended up finishing 16 out of 20 but they had some great top 5 finishes in there.

But before all the hype I visited the team for a practice day in early May.  It was sunny and warm out and just about everyone was in attendance for a terrific practice.  Even Lyle, team alum and former sailing instructor for the majority of these students, hopped in a 420 for some practice races!

More can be found in the Viewing Gallery, where images can be purchased by sailors and family.  Enjoy!

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.

I haven't been in the water for sunset in a while.  But the opportunity finally presented itself a couple weeks ago.  The sky was clear for once, there was a bump of swell in the water but apparently no one really deemed it worthwhile because the lineup was empty.  Fellow photographer friend Gus Potter grabbed his board instead of a camera, and the two of us hopped in with only half an hour or so before sunset to catch a few with the one other soul already in the water.  

It was a little windy and wonky, and certainly cold, but it was one of my favorite sessions this month.  You just can't beat that dusky light!
