Picture of the Week: June 22, 2009


This week's Picture is indicative of the 'feast or famine' Spring weather we've had so far. It has either been raining every other day or hotter than blazes. The recent Chicago NOOD regatta (held June 19-21 at Chicago Yacht Club) was no different.
The weather went from Storms,Rain with wind on Friday to hot burn, light weather on Sunday. The photo above (courtesy of Sailing World and Tim Wilkes photography) was taken of the First 36.7 Fleet going down to the leeward mark during the regatta. The HOT weather on land is visualized the by ozone haze shielding the skyline. Hoping that our Summer (now officially here) is kinder to us and brings favorable breezes.
