Regatta photos

The start of the race.  Countdown to the start, if a boat is over before
the final bell, that boat must do a 360 turn and go on from there.  
I'd like to share a few of my favorites from the recent Carolyn Nute Memorial Snipe Regatta (held at Mission Bay Yacht Club).

My son & daughter-in-law sail this class boat -- a  Snipe  (for more info click on the link).   I've been lucky enough to get on a committee boat and photograph several of their regattas.  This is always a fun one because some sailors wear costumes.   Elvis sailed with us this year!  
Rounding the mark, always looks chaotic but there are rules! 

Successful rounding!

Elvis sails.

Shelter Island sunset

San Diego city front from Shelter Island.  I enjoyed a brief sunset tonight from Shelter Island.  I'll need to check this location out another day, the clouds were beautiful tonight!    Hope you all have a great week.
