Marblehead Junior Race Week Begins

  • Marblehead Junior Race Week begins on Monday and continues through Wednesday with Optis and Lasers racing in the waters around Marblehead

I was fortunate to have a day off yesterday just as Marblehead Junior Race Week began and so I headed to Chandler Hovey Park a little after 2pm to see what images I might capture of the Optis racing just outside the harbor. I started off shooting with my real camera and longest zoom but wasn’t happy with the compositions so I switched over to the drone.

I circled the boats nearest the harbor until I found this composition of the small one-kid boats racing with Marblehead Light standing tall in the distance.

Racing continues Tuesday and Wednesday so head out to Chandler Hovey park or Castle Rock for great viewing conditions.

    What a wonderful program! Both of my children grew up racing in Marblehead at Pleon, there’s just nothing like it and watching from the lighthouse. What great memories.
