SUN­SET PHOTO CON­TEST

Cruising World - - Underway -

“It was a pre­fect day to head out on July Fourth this year aboard my friend and rac­ing crew’s boat, Beneteau Ocea­nis. We were head­ing out early, from the Rochester Yacht Club in New York, to en­joy a sail and to get into po­si­tion to ob­serve the fire­works for that evening. The breeze and waves on Lake On­tario de­cided to find some peace, and soon the calm set in. Af­ter furl­ing our sails, we hoisted our colors and burgees to cel­e­brate be­fore the set­ting sun.” “This pic­ture was taken dur­ing the An­napo­lis-to-ber­muda Race aboard a Swan 44. We were be­calmed for about 24 hours. Very painful for rac­ers!” “This photo was taken in Cane Gar­den Bay in May 2014. My daugh­ter was pi­lot­ing our dinghy out to get some sun­set shots when I asked her to cir­cle around our boat so I could get a pic­ture, and this was the re­sult. Hope­fully, many will find their way to the Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands — those who have vis­ited be­fore as well as first-time vis­i­tors. It’s a truly beau­ti­ful place.”
