    Agreed; I was glad just to make it to the start line and find a bit of space before the drifting start. The light breeze from the left in the last bit was a godsend. Boats that were able to hang sails to leeward to create shape. The CoreSound 17 that won did that exceptionally well with two sails, hence a real advantage.

    Speaking of Dave Gentry, I grabbed a few nice photos of the sailing canoe he brought. It looked much more responsive than our MacGregor, must be a lot lighter.

    A nice boat to gunkhole about the bay.



    I believe this is a Drascombe enjoying an early morning sail.



    A lot of us wish plans were available for this nicely colored one.



    A nice Coquina wing on wing.

    Barry, I got a handful of nice ones for you. Your tops'l was setting well.

    Those are some gorgeous pics! The MacGregor looks like she's dancing more than sailing.

    Do you have any pics of my outrigger canoe? Red deck and white hull.

    Sorry Phil, I don't have any of your outrigger. It's typically too risky for me to take a camera when sailing the MacGregor, so I don't have anything from the race.

    Here's a Somes Sound that just didn't get around to bending sail the entire weekend. I wanted to see it out.



    I've lusted after one these off and on over the years, a Wm Garden Eel. It even has the hinged housetop.

    Your picture are beautifully composed with great exposure and color! That Somes was a pretty boat, but I think the owner polishes more than sails. What a nice event!

    I was tied up next to the Somes, that was a lovely boat with some well thought out and subtle details. I really wanted to see her sail.

    Andrew, those are great photos, and thanks for sharing them - you're my newest favorite photographer. Sorry, Barry.

    Your boat was a work of art, btw. I like the sapele planks. Bummer that your deck was so hideous that you had to hide it, though.


    Great seeing all of you, whether we met and talked or not.

    Yeah, how did I manage to not talk with you, Dave? Or Barry or lots of other Forumites?
    Next year we should at least try for a WBForum photo op or something.

    Aww gee, thanks Dave.

    This was to be our last weekend out with the MacGregor. We're thinking of getting rid of it to make room for another project.

    I saw this one out, though not sailing. Is it a Somme's Sound? I couldn't tell whether that or a Haven 12 . Not familiar enough with either to tell them apart.

    That Somes Sound stayed on the trailer last year, this year it stayed at the slip, maybe enjoying a boat takes just as long as building it.

    A little more wind and this was going to get up and plane.




    A good friend Mike, on his John Brady designed melonseed.



    This one appeals not so much for composition, but for how it represents the popularity of White, Welsford and Oughtred...for good reason too I should add.



    I see this one off and on over the summer, as she moors on Worton Creek. A shrunken sandbagger.



    I know, I know, this one's fiberglass, but...

    I talked to the owner both last year and this years. Real nice older gentleman. Last year he had just finished it and hadn't sailed it yet. I try to encourage him that we should take it out and I'd crew. I think he saw the dings in the teak on my Sea Pearl and declined! He wound up winning a well deserved first place in his building class and I voted "peoples choice" but she didn't win that. This year he told me he had her out a few times, but didn't seem like he was going to take it out this year. I'll say she's a beauty.

    Ha! Steve, you do appear to use boats rather hard, no surprised he decline. :-) In one of my photos he has the sails bent on, but is powering with a trolling motor. Not much to go wrong, if not very exciting. Lovely boat, though.

    Andy, I have almost an exact duplicate of that shot coming. Light and water, nice lines, regardless of the materials.

    Another round of 70+ pix, these include the race, which this year was a bit of a drift.

    Excellent stuff Barry. Thank you. This festival morphs into an art show...every year.

    As I look through these again, it appears Mr. Gentry makes quite an impression. Methinks he should come to this event more often. He did offer me a beer within a few minutes of arriving. I was not aware this was a photographer bribe, but now must reconsider. Andy, did he ply you with beer, as well?

    Incidentally, there's some video coming where he also figures prominently. Such a soft spoken guy, too . . .

    No Barry, he didn't...but for me, it would have to be a gluten-free variety, which sucks the fun out of the proposition entirely.

    I'll take that as a compliment! WildCat has a few love scars, but she has brought me a lot of fun. I did get a ribbon for not ramming Clemmens's Navigator, so there is hope for me. Next year I'll be bringing my Core Sound 20 Mark III I'm almost done with. I'll probably be a bit gentler since I have a bit of sweat equity into her.

    And in case I didn't mention it, your pictures are always amazing.
