Whitebread XVIII Photos

I got the opportunity to be on the "Press Boat" for Whitebread XVIII Regatta Saturday. Another year with a great fleet to follow!

We had an amazing platform to work from - a 75' steel workboat with a 2nd story pilot house which gave us an unusual chance to get shots from well above the fleet. The only down-side was that we weren't able to run in close to get closeups of the deck action. The weather was perfect, although I think the fleet would have liked a bit more wind - especially when the tide turned & the wind died. Hate to see sails come down & engines go on before reaching the finish.

If you are interested, the photos are posted at

The shots are great but boy am I a neophyte. I saw Whitebread and thought you must mean Whitbread, which is now the Volvo Ocean Race, so I expected something different!
Not to hijack but that race does start this month, the 29th!
