Wickford Regatta: Bravo

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.
