I've been making return trips to take pictures at Wickford Sailing Association, to cover at least every class once and hopefully capture at least a few images of each student. Recently I made the trip to see the Opti Racing class, which has a special place in my heart since every single one of these racers below was a student of mine at the beginning level. It's terrific to see them older and more excited about sailing! They've all improved leaps and bounds from the days I was their instructor, and I'm so proud of all of them! Several students in this class are currently sailing in Opti regattas throughout the country, from Massachusetts to Ohio. Many of the students I took pictures of recently are brand new to Opti Racing, competing in Opti Green Fleet for NBYA events throughout the bay. It was a terrific day, great breeze for them, great lighting for me, and lots of fun and smiles!
All shots from the day can be found in the WSA Junior Sailing 2012 Viewing Gallery, with photographer's picks in the Juniors section of my Photography Catalog.

How I got these shots: Nikon D700, 70-200mm VRII, great little sailors!
