Shots by amateur photographer Matthew Pollock (SEA SHADOW) at the Narragansett Bay ChampionshipClick on the thumbnails for full sized shots.
HOSS, WET LEOPARD, and KIMA go upwind. KIMA rounding just ahead of SEA SHADOW. WET PAINT and NORDIC EXPRESS follow the leader around the weather mark and the offset.
Six boats fight for space on the line while JATO tacks behind them. Another beautiful day on Block Island Sound. PICANTE is the boat closest to the camera. Nine 105s go downwind with NO SURRENDER, PICANTE, and HOSS leading the pack.
That's WOODY going for speed as the boats in the background have a luffing match before the gun.
