Marblehead High School Sailing on a Spring Day

  • Frostbite sailing takes place on a beautiful sunday in April with Marblehead harbor yet to fill with boats for the season

On Sunday, I had to drop off my son at a friend’s house on the Neck. At the last minute, I grabbed my camera with the longest lens I had in the hopes that frostbite sailing might have returned to Marblehead Harbor.  With seemingly endless Nor’Easters and otherwise bad conditions, I hadn’t had a chance to photograph the sailboats inside the harbor racing in front of familiar locations.

As luck would have it, I found a fleet race was taking place and the conditions were picture perfect with bright sun overhead, partly cloudy skies behind Abbot Hall and an otherwise empty harbor.  I quickly set up and shot a few frames only to realize I had arrived at the very end of the day’s racing.

I had assumed this was the usual frostbite sailing crew only to later learn it was our very own Marblehead High School sailing team hosting their first regatta of the season against two Maine teams.  Go Magicians!
