Fast Race on the Chesapeake

An exciting ride on SummerWind in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. SummerWind was neck and neck with Pride of Baltimore for a few hours, until the wind picked up and she could pull away- through the night we averaged 12 knots, and surfed to over 13, finishing at just after 4 am.
