Live...the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race

I know I seem geographically stuck on the Chesapeake Bay these days – but when the rain fianlly clears it remains one of my very favorite places to be sailing during the fall season. It’s easy to forget that Virginia’s Tidewater region is a big part of the Chesapeake Bay – on that note here’s an entertaining journal series (in the Virginia Pilot) authored by Virginian-Pilot photographer Steve Earley. Steve is aboard the Schooner Virginia as it competes in The Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race from Oct. 12-15. According to the article, he'll be posting from the deck of the ship during the 127-nautical mile race from Baltimore to Portsmouth. There are 12 entries to date and some truly stellar photographs. Enjoy this one folks...
