I didn't get to take many pictures, as I was racing singlehanded most of these pictures were taken before or after the races. Some were taken by Sue Buck, who flies a Flying Dutchman with her husband Sonny.

Races started Saturday morning with 13 JY15s, 12 Sunfish, 5 Lasers, and 11 in the Portsmouth Fleet. Here the Sunfish start a race, Warren Fitzpatrick (5th) in 88460 leads the start, with Greg Gust (1st) in 78707. Mary Medina in 79319 (7th) and Larry Seals (10th) in 79146 are close behind.
