Apologies!! NYC saw bright sunlight, and all the cylinders fired, but I stood in the wrong location and my fotos are mostly backlit.

Race officials gave the signal for the first heat–more powerful boats.  The race ran in two heats for the first time this year;  the second heat featured less powerful boats.  The race-start foto below, showing only MOST of the line-up,  comes thanks to Bernie of Working Harbor Committee, organizing several tours in September.

The final count was over two dozen, maybe as many as 28.  Sometimes I can’t count that high.

Winner in this class was Ross Sea followed by Maryland.

In one of many pushing contests, Maryland takes on Cornell.

More tomorrow.
