Day before: July 11,
Saturday, Chancery Art Gallery.
Chancery Regatta has been postponed due to a thunderstorm.
Peter is probably thinking how he will be sailing his 8-feet wooden mini
boat in such weather tomorrow... Next day, during the Regatta, even mature
sailors called it “crazy” watching his fight with waves and
gusts. But Peter is tough, and his painting "New Moon Sailing"
(on the brick wall behind him) also came from his own
extreme sailing experiences
It was a rough regatta
with wind gusts of 21 knots
Although Chancery Regatta is "non-competitive,"
the human nature called for a real race...
Captain Bill with 50 years of the ocean sailing experience
and his crew confidently lead the Regatta
As the leader of the Chancery Regatta '09,
captain Bill helps other yachts to dock safely
It is nice to be on even semi-firm ground of a dock
Finish with lots of Champaign
Perhaps Taboo has never seen
three high masts at once on its docks...
Time for after-regatta lunch
13 sailors of the Chancery Regatta '09
have a lunch in Taboo at Boathouse Bar & Grill
Walter makes last adjustments before departure
Sailing home from Taboo docks
Lena and Paul, founders of Chancery Regatta
and Chancery Art Gallery
invite the sailors for the next year race (July 10, 2010)
