First Turn for the Jackson Cup

  • One design boats compete for the Jackson Cup in front of Abbot Hall on a perfect April afternoon

On the last weekend in April, I headed across to the Neck and captured these one design boats vying for the Jackson Cup. The sailboats crossed in front of familiar landmarks such as Abbot Hall while competing inside of Marblehead Harbor.

This shot seemed to capture three boats vying for position at the first turn – though to be honest, I couldn’t follow the race well enough to judge where it began or ended…

      Thanks Dorothy. I used a 400mm lens which helps compress the distance between objects giving this unique point of view.

      I wasn’t sure if this was a drone shot too, but then the angle is very low. Nice.

    This is awesome. I love how the triangular sails mimic the triangles of the rooftop of Abbot Hall.
