Here’s Autumn Sail 2.  All fotos today come compliments of Melanie Lettau, who crews on A. J. Meerwald, below.  The occasion for the gathering down on the Chesapeake was

the annual schooner race from Baltimore to Portsmouth, VA.  Here are the results.  Below, it’s Sultana and Summerwind.  Summerwind, based at the US Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY, was the Class AA winner.

Privateer Lynx finished third.

Lady Maryland–yes she is painted pink –finished fourth.

left to right, Woodwind (?)  and the curvaceous Shanty

And not to be omitted, with a second place finish, it’s Pride of Baltimore II.

A schooner that would have been happy to race last week–When and If-did not, since it’s for sale.  Who knows . . . some other participants from previous years but NOT on hand in 2010 might also be for sale.

Final shot . . . left to right:  Norfolk Rebel (the world’s only “tugantine”), Summerwind, Lady Maryland, and an unidentifed tug in the background.

All fotos by Melanie Lettau.  Thanks a bunch!

And some sixth boro autumn sailing pics coming soon.
