Congressional cup 2014
To the casual observer, it has no logic, boats sailing in circles with no apparent destination. But for 50 years, this match sailing regatta has a loyal international following. The Belmont Shore Pier is the host of this years race. With both the number one Canfield (USA) and number 2 team Williams (UK) in attendance, an excited crowd gathered on a beautiful, and luckily windy day. We found ourselves sucked into the action, trying to follow the rules of this technical style of racing, with the boats coming alarmingly close to the pier at times. A welcome break from the grand prix madness happening this weekend.
