Summer photos -- dial up warning!

Here are some pics that I've taken this summer...enjoy!

A light air race near the Newport Bridge:

Heading home in very light wind:

A cool shot of the sun and water:

View of clouds and the Newport Bridge from my boat:

The Indonesian tall ship Dewaruci:

More of Dewaruci: when I sailed by the crew was waving at me and they had old Top 40 music blasting!

Amistad:

Two sunset shots from Newfound Lake, NH:


Aaahhh! Don't eat me! A Laser and a 12-meter:

Adirondack and Arabella:

Some cool closeups of Arabella:


My new spinnaker:


Sunrise over Newport, with a tug and barge:

Sunrise reflected on the water:

This seagull was checking me out!

Rocks off Ft. Wetherill, Jamestown:

A pretty day to sail, my boat:

A not-so-pretty day to sail, foggiest I've ever been in, very neat to be out there, though! These pics are <1/4 mile from land:

Great shots. Do you enter any regattas with your boat. I went in one this weekend but forgot the camera. LOL.

My boat is small, and not especially fast, so i usually just go out and follow the races on Tuesday night. I am going to do an around-the-island race Labor day weekend, which should be fun.

Here our average boat size is 22-30'. Just FW lakes around us. So regatta's with our 26' Mirage are usually a breeze. I love your pics while actually sailing, gives those who can't sail a perspective they wouldn't normally get.
