Those "large, expensive cameras" are just my version of a hammer and are insured...not to worry... I was more worried about dropping my binocs or the handheld VHF.

Hello All,

Glad to have met many of you at the dinner at the Fleet Club. Thanks again eryka for that treat. Agree with the preceding "Wows" on the assessment of the Photo Team's work!

We sailed home to Herrington Harbor North afterward in winds from 16-22 knots and seas 2-3 feet (once out of the Severn R. mouth powerboat chop). I knew that if I set the pole for a wing & wing run, the wind would change its direction enough to send me back to that rolling bow anyway, so we made the distance on two gybes. Covered more water but made 7.5 SOG and 8+ on the log. (though I think the paddlewheel transducer reports a bit "daffy" in higher winds.

Hey Glen... 1st off, I finally got the bottom scrubbed thanks to the diver recommendation that you gave me. Thanks again for that.

We were transplanted Californians 16 years ago and wanted to name our new boat something very Virginia regional. As you may recall, Virginia Dare was the first born English child in the New World and that in the Virginia Colony. (At bay now Tar Heals! Back then, in 1587 Roanoke Island was Virginia Colony). Virginia Dare was part of Sir Walter Raleigh's "Lost Colony" - some believe captured by the Powhatan tribe and taken into slavery. So we will never know what Virginia Dare really looked like. I like my wife's determined chin and sketched that in profile - then had a pretty talented Graphics Designer (VCU grad) at my former employer work up the graphic design in Adobe Illustrator (during her lunch hour of course). I took the drawing to Quantum Sailmakers and for a fee - they did the rest. Thanks for the spinnaker compliment. And thanks to Jamison for that shot.

Donna and I were looking at the pictures again. We are still awestruck by the work you did Joe. All the boats looked really good. and from angles you would never ever get.

As I look at all of our boats, I think back to what really hooked me onto sailing when I was 7 (god thats over 40 years ago). It wasnt the screaming winds or sea. It wasnt the technical tactician stuff of gybes and rhumb lines. It wasnt the racing or the vastness of the open ocean.

What hooked me and still does onto sailing was the true beauty of a sailboat with wind in her sails. Joe I think you captured that in your photographs of all of our boats. I am sure all of you sat there and looked at your boat...and then looked at the beauty of all of the other boats there also. Joe you really captured it. The plate was always my canvass prefessionally ( as it is for Shawn) The hardest artistic thing to do is transfer your passion through your work and to get others to feel it. You are a true artist of the camera.

BRAVO- I still am in awe of everyone elses pictures

Shawn was the "real man" he had his bimini down and was getting sprayed, while we were hiding behind our enclosure.drinking hot chocolate
We sailed up to the bay bridge then motor sailed up the bay in the chop/current getting our brains beat out. Didn't have our bimini up either and I had accidentally left my "good" foulies in my car. Ass kicker is a good description! We kept saying we wished we had been headed to Oxford since that would have been an awesome sail. Had a nice sail into the river though and right up to the entrance channel to our creek. Was touch and go getting in - with the wind blowing the water out of the creek all day there was only about 3" under the keel on the final cut into the marina. All in all a very fun weekend though!

That is a spectacular spinny for sure... so Wayne, how do you celebrate the 16th of August?

So far I have only 5 requests, so if you haven't ordered any yet just let me know in a private message and be sure to include your email address... And as I told one requester, the price doubles after 15 images ;-)
Joe

One other note, Spinnsheet is interested and will make a decision after the Boat Show, so look for yourselves there, maybe the November issue.

Joe,

Those are some great pictures. Just wish Jeannie and I could have been there for the shoot not to mention the fact of the great sail it would have been returning north against the wind that afternoon.

Dee and Jeannie
