ERR 2009: Part One

So I'm realizing that since I got lazy about posting last summer and only really started blogging this spring, I should post some pictures that never got face time. I've been working my way through my albums, photo-shopping ones I deem worthy. Right now I'm working on the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta photos I took last August (or last weekend in July? I should look it up), and I've gotten through the feeder race from Camden to Brooklyn (Maine, not NYC...). So here are some pics, I'll post the rest from the sunny actual ERR race tomorrow. Enjoy!

Also, I want it known that any photos I post here are for sale. Let me know which one you want and I'll tell you my price and send you a print either matted or as is.

Three crew aboard the schooner Heritage have the best view in the house (or boat).

Finally, wind! Jonathan leads the pack.


Spinnakers up, the racers desperately wait for wind on the downwind leg after Goose Island.

Listening to: Israelites, Desmond Dekker. Great, great, great song. Chiddy Bang also does an awesome sample of this...from the mixtape Swelly Express, check it out on Julian's blog Heartless Handshakes and download the whole tape, but the song I'm talking about is the first one.
Lines I like: "Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are gone, I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde."
