Synergy under Spinnaker Approaching Bridge 2

Old Blue knocked down

These were taken during a recent Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society (CHESSS) Challenge. We all started on a deep reach in 8-10 knots of wind. A couple of us decided to fly our spinnakers single-hand. The first picture is my Farr 11.6, "Synergy" sailing through the Bay Bridge. Once we got north of the Bridge the wind began to build quickly with gusts to nearly 20 knots. The second picture is of John Zseleczky's Pearson 30, "Old Blue" taking a knock down during one of the larger gusts. John did a masterful job of getting "Old Blue" back up on her feet and dousing the chute by himself in those conditions. Both photos were taken by Jim [email protected] JamesLittle3 .

I was 11 and our family was out sailing when this picture was taken in 1975, we were on lake Macatawa in Holland Michigan. Owned by the Baker family, of Baker Furniture, this is one sweet three masted ship.

Re: "Picture of the week" submission thread

This is a terrific thread. I don't use an image hosting site and can only put up a thumbnail.... so I won't bother to unless mods want to dnload and move it to another site and then re post the image. How bout dat?

Great photos. Not sure we can post any as the "picture of the week" as, I believe, in order to not violate copyright, they must be photos that SN members took. I could be wrong.

Still. Great pictures.

Since Photobucket has killed third party hosting without an exorbitant fee (which Sailnet likely won't pay for) the 'picture of the week' has pretty much died as I was the only one trying to update it on a regular basis.

Donna's likely right about the copyright issues, and right about 'great pictures' too.
