More than 70 boats competed in the Flying Scot North American Championship in Westport, CT this year. What a week! The wind was decidedly well above average for Long Island Sound in July. Thursday’s Northwesterly created some memorable moments for participants with some pretty intense gusts.
The Flying Scots are a great bunch of sailors, especially with a lot of parent-child and husband-wife (or wife-husband, as they call it) teams in the mix. We happened to take a lot of photos at the finish line at this regatta, and we caught a shot of a celebratory kiss from a wife-husband team that just had a good race. Awww.
