Sponsorship In Calm Seas

One more for you from the same day as this.  Wide angle lens from the bottom of the mast.  I have a few under sail that had a great swoopy motion to them, but this one… the clouds!

The Budweiser Select sponsorship on the sail sort of cracks me up.  Not only do you not see it when you’re on the boat, but I don’t even know what Budweiser Select is.  If ever a misnomer there was, this is it.

Religion of the Sea

Went sailing last week.  Biiig yacht – 70 feet.  I thought that seasickness might be the order of the day but standing on the dock waiting to get on board was the worst part.  My beer was cheap and Korean.  One of my fellow passengers decided that sake, Merlot, and Red Stripe was a good idea.  Somehow we all survived.  I took this.

Yacht Mast with no sail - triple cross

I can see how sailing might be your religion.  To top it off, this boat gets the triple cross – symbolism, right?  Maybe there is something to it – I managed to bring my camera and my camera strap, but not the piece that attaches the two together and somehow I didn’t drop it into Elliott Bay.
