For Wordless Wednesday.
For the Daily Prompt: jolly.
As the sailboats return during a meet, the red paddle boat set out to give a helping tow, just for fun. Quite jolly.
My daughter is sailing FJs in college and racing. She informs me that she hated sailing when she was little, out with my father and me. My father took this photograph, in his Miller 28.
Hated it: well, maybe….
For the Daily Prompt: dubious.
I stand on the shore, dubious, while the teams launch out into the sleet.
The older generation worries while the young set forth and explore.
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.
