Hoist the main sail, the race is on

You're back on the lakefront in Mandeville again, and they have a regata going out past the break water. You'll need a good lens to capture the action. But, with plenty of sails and a little bravery you can get a good pic. Bravery? Well, the closest shot to that action is to walk out on the jetty. It's about a foot and a half wide and 300 feet long.

Out there with the water all around you, the taste and smell of the lake envelopes you and you immerse yourself in the feeling of sailing. The gentle breeze swells your sail. The race is on.
