Though we are back in Crested Butte, CO for 2 weeks enjoying the good company of my friend Sandy Sandy, and photographing the wildflowers, I wanted to add a couple photos of the National Mariner races held at the Surf City Yacht Club just before we left. Our friend Newt Wattis asked me to photograph the racers and their boats as a gift to the participants. Newt turned out being the winner of the series, for not the first time. He is quite a sailer!
Some of the boat lines up at the start.

The Winner!! Sailing in a stiff breeze.
