Wickford Regatta: Bravo

June 04, 2013

Bravo circle was full of high performance one design boats:  the 505s, F-18 catamarans and the triple-handed Vipers.  While I still bounced between both circles on day two of the Wickford Regatta, I spent much more time on Bravo circle.  It was the first time I had seen F-18s sail and they were quite exciting to watch!  

Day two of the regatta had very similar conditions to the first day, with overcast skies, a breeze filling around noon, and rain that luckily held off.  Everyone got in multiple races and had a lot of fun!  There was only a few capsizes, just one broken rig that I know of, and one bloody injury, but fun overall.  It was a great group of competitors, and many of us are already looking forward to next year's event.  With sailors coming all the way from Massachusetts to Florida, we can only hope for more participation next year.  Hopefully, the J/70 fleet will be able to sail, and perhaps we will even see the return of the Moth fleet!

More photos from the event in the Viewing Gallery, where personal purchases can be made by competitors and family.  For Fine Art options of the photographer's picks, visit the Photography Catalog.

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!

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.
