Here's a final (?) pic from the trip, when we were very nearly to the ship's home port of Ivy Lea, Ontario.

(The ship arrived home on Wednesday.)

It's the Mist of Avalon vs. Brockville, Ontario's Shark fleet on Tuesday evening.



We're in the St Lawrence, tacking towards the Canadian shore (that's NY State shoreline in the background) as the Brockville sailing club's weekly races get underway. That's the the Shark fleet we're messing with (24-foot boats, for scale). I normally race on the boat on the extreme right in this pic, so the contrast is especially interesting for me.

Great thread, Darin. It's a great look into a sport (really, experience) that many of us can only live vicariously through posts, pics and articles.

A big for the coverage!
