Welcome to our first photo gallery of 2010. The first few shots were taken on the breakwater course, but the majority are from Southampton Shoals, where four races were run, on a sunny day with a brisk northeasterly. The gusty, shifty wind led to several capsizes. Look in the middle of the gallery for a dramatic sequence of a Contender capsize and recovery. Many thanks to Tony Castruccio and the volunteers aboard Richmond YC’s RC trawler Pelican for taking our photographer along. See results at www.richmondyc.org.
