Cliff Walk, Newport




There is a 2 mile walking path along the waters edge aptly named "Cliff Walk". After my walk I came back reinvigorated and salty. Posted by Picasa

Coggleshall Avenue, Newport




Some pictures from the street where the house that I was staying in is located. It was only a few blocks to the beach. Posted by Picasa

Newport, Rhode Island

Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to Newport, Rhode Island for a Farr 40 regatta. I didn't take any sailing pictures (because I was too busy racing of course!), but I did manage to take a few walks after the racing was done and I actually remembered to bring my camera.

This is a picture of "Americas Cup" Avenue and the rest of the street signs in this area are all named after Cup boats - cool! Posted by Picasa

Vic-Maui Race 2006


Steve and I went over to Victoria on the Canada Day long weekend to wish our friends on Kinetic bon voyage as they left for a race across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. Once again Steve was a spectator and he said twice was enough...next time he will be doing the race. These are a couple of pictures of us saying goodbye to our good buddy Mark Sykes. I think Steve was trying to jump on board and stow away!
