This past saturday a sailing regatta was held in the outer harbor consisting of high school teams from around the region. The winds were brisk and the skies were clear,perfect for sailing. In the meantime whale watch boats are still taking the tourists out and the schooner "Roseway" comes in for her yearly maintenance.
While I was drifting trying to photograph the regatta I hear what sounded like a mini jet engine! Looking up towards my bow was a windsurfer heading right at me! He was moving fast,very fast and no time for me to get the boat in gear and out of the way! My heart skipped a beat when he turned away at the last second! He passed about two feet along my starboard side yelling like a cowboy as he sped away!
