Wow! This is great stuff!! Captions can make your pictures even better. There some spectacular scenic backgrounds in some of your pictures.

What can I say, but these pictures are exactly what I was hoping for. Keep them coming.

Thank you to all who have posted pictures and to those who are going to!!

Boomer

I found a couple more I liked, taken on a particually windy day that put the boat and the skipper to the test.

He sure has some great pictures and I for one would like to see more.
I'd like know more about those that have racing collisions and one looks like the shipper gave the command to "dive, dive". Wonder if it sank?

Here is a Pic of my IOM(Trinity) at the US Nationals, photo was taken by Eric R., sailing with the B rig on 2 out of the 3 days, it was a blast!!! Average windspeed on Friday & Sunday was 13-14 mph with gusts up to 25mph. Wind & waves(1.5-2 ft), what a blast and an experience I will never forget.

No boats were harmed while taking pics! Those pics of submarine IOMs were taken at Hansen Dam, in the L.A. area. Same skippers and boats will be sailing in SCRS race #5 in San Diego later in November.

A couple of Marbleheads on a light wind day in Hamilton.The IOM's won the races
And a couple of scale keelers.Unsure of the design.Apparently they were built alongside the full scale boat.

No more info ,sorry.The guys sailing them had purchased off the widow of the builder.The story goes that he had built the varnished one from the full size plans.Then built the real thing.Once he had finished that he built the green boat to accompany the first model.He then died.
Someone may know the design.It reminds me of a Catalina.
