Sailing the Hudson River

For three seasons I served on the Viking crew in weekly races
on the Hudson River at Haverstraw, N.Y., and in weekend
regattas nearby. Skippered by Paul Nahodyl, the 27-foot J boat
was a sleek boat designed to take advantage of wind power.
Time constraints for all put an end to a run of fun. Shown
here are a few of top images of "Grabbing The Wind." For a
better look at the fury and serenity of sailing click on archived
images, listed by month and season below.
