Star Class Centennial Regatta - Larchmont

click images to enlarge

Larchmont Yacht Club hosted the Centennial Regatta of the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association.  Over 100 boats competed - 98 moderns, 9 wood, and 13 classics in four days of racing.  The legendary keel boat - recently bounced from the Olympics in favor of X-games type hot racers - is the favorite of world champion sailors like Torben Grael and Paul Cayard.
I got lucky today on my way back from the Indian Harbor Classics race in Greenwich.  I found myself motoring west on North River as the Star fleet beat to windward on the Long Island Sound.  Here is the link to the shots I took.  And HERE is the link to shots by a pro. Video below.
