ALL IN THE FAM­ILY

SAIL - - Racing Under Sail -

A ca­sual on­looker could be for­given for won­der­ing if their eyes were play­ing tricks on them this past sum­mer in New­port, Rhode Is­land as me­ter boats of all sizes de­scended on Nar­ra­gansett Bay for the Me­tre­fest Re­gatta: an event that fea­tured ev­ery­thing from 2.4mR sin­gle­han­ders to the sto­ried 12s of Amer­ica’s Cup fame. Here the 6-Me­ter Lu­cie strug­gles to stay ahead of the 12-Me­ter Laura’s wind shadow. Good luck with that! For more on the re­gatta, visit me­tre­fest.com.
