As the teams head out to race again, they bail. The boat is leaned deliberately to collect the water and dump it. I love the ease in the stances of both sailors and the teamwork.
This is the hot swap at the regatta at Lake Whatcom last Sunday: where the boats come in, switch teams and all go out again. Fast and furious! I like the symmetry, all lined up.
I am the neophyte photographing sailing.
From Saturday, at Lake Whatcom, taken with a zoom in the snow.
Taken on Saturday. I wanted to capture the lifting cloud with the snowy hill below and the trees still gold and green. And the sailboats returning to switch crews.
I came to Bellingham yesterday to visit my daughter and watch the Regatta, http://wwusailing.com/regattas/, Western Washington and five other college teams, in the light snow and sometimes sleet.
The main comment I heard about the sleet was “Oh, good, some wind.”
Taken from shore, Nikon Coolpix P510, 42x zoom.
