I’m not sure where the name Pixel came from for this modern double- or triple- handed intermediate junior boat that has become popular on Long Island Sound.  Presumably designer Bruce Kirby gave the boat its name.  But it is a word we photographers use a lot these days, so during the Pequot Pixel Invitational this week, there a few corny jokes spoken aboard our Photo boat that referred to a high resolution fleet.

The kids had two days of great sailing off of Southport. I remember sailing in this event as a Blue Jay sailor out of Pequot circa 1992, and it’s great to see such a strong program continuing a great tradition.  The boat has been upgraded, and today’s sailors are proud to make the Clean Regatta environment pledge.  Other than that, not a lot has changed!  See the photos here.
