Far Side of the World

The recent lapse in posting was caused by a trip to England and Ireland for a family wedding, and the beginning of my law school semester. While I was in England I stopped by Rutland Water; it still looked the same as it did when I was learning to sail...there was even a fleet of Optimists on the beach at RSC waiting for a thunderstorm to clear.

In honor of my return to North America, here's a contest. Can anyone identify the beach in the photo below? The winner will get instructions on how to make a duct tape wallet.

In other news, I actually did some sailing back in August at the Sunapee Open in New Hampshire. We did fairly well, coming in 8th out of 30 boats. There were two races in good breeze on Saturday but there was no wind on Sunday. Here's a good photo:

I am crewing in 7101...notice anything strange about this picture?

Due to an optical illusion it looks like 7101 is leading the fleet.

Nah, he obviously used Photoshop to switch the numbers around, so it looks like his boat is leading. But the people aren't big enough to identify clearly, so he can get away with this.

We were leading that group of boats.
