RPNYC Sailing Spring Twilight (Race 1)

Light winds made a pleasant change from the usual roaring tempest. This evening's start featured the appearance of a tug boat, a car ferry, and the departure of a cruise liner.


The Bayleys sponsored Farr MRX and another yacht stooging about before the start


One of the red tug boats steamed right past my camera


...presumably to aid 'The World' in exiting the harbour


note the pilot up on the bridge


passengers seemed content to lean over the rail and contemplate how rich they are





...anyway, back to the sailing... Gucci sailing off Oriental Bay


Bobby Shafto and Structural Analysis


Blue Magic throws a tack right in front of me


...meanwhile Rhys figures out which arms go where in his jacket...


At the gun - Astruso, Structural Analysis, and Gucci going for the line


they're off, and so was I (back to work)
