SYC Saturday Racing

August 08, 2013

A little while ago I had the opportunity to join the Saunderstown Yacht Club for their weekly Saturday Racing, hosting one design races all summer long!  Junior sailors from the SYC sailing program join in Opti and 420 classes, while everyone else participates in Sunfish, Bullseye, Catboats and Rhodes 19.  There are no age restraints and it looked like a total blast!  

Everyone had three races and the breeze was on.  It was sunny but not blisteringly hot, and rain was nowhere in sight.  It was probably the first perfect summer day we'd had all season!  I was shooting from the committee float (yes, float not boat) and was more than happy with the shots that came out!

I'll be joining this upcoming Saturday as well, but probably to get in on the fun instead of photograph :)

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

Board Portraits // Experiments

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.

Snowy Surf Sessions

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.
