Finish Line at First Light

Pete Andrews - Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Going through my photos for the past couple of weeks, I came across this one, which, while it's a bit grainy, I kinda like. The sailboat is finishing the Annapolis Newport Race from earlier this month, and she had picked up some netting in her wheel in the Chesapeake early on in the race. We got the call about 0300, and were on scene at the finish line as she finished right about at first light. A couple hours later, she was tied up at Norton's and her crew could get a well-deserved shower!
