Re: "Picture of the week" submission thread
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]
