ALL IN THE FAMILY
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.
