More than 70 boats set off just a few boat lengths from Ellis Island Thursday afternoon for the 200-miles race around Long Island. Usually, the race starts off the Rockaways. This year, the start line was in the shadow of lower Manhattan.
Thanks to Jim Chambers for a place on the Osprey to watch all nine divisions start.
Wish I could have joined them but …
I do hope they return here again next year and that Zennora and I will be part of the race.
I have many other shots and If you send me your boat’s name and/or sail number I will look to see what I have.
Also, if anyone from S/V Encore reads this, message me. I have a rather, umm, interesting picture that will make the crew smile.
