Here on Bainbridge Island we have a harbor called Port Madison. It has the distinction of hosting North America's largest collection of 6 meter sail boats (Puget Sound area). They sail out of the Port Madison Yacht Club. It is a fine and well cared for collection of classic 6m boats. I crew on Hanko and I will tell you a little about that boat and some of the others later.
See you on the water - Dave
THE 2005 BOUNDARY CUP
It is fall of 2005 and we meet the Canadians at Deer Harbor on Orcus Island for the Boundary Cup Race, an annual event. Four Winds Camp is our gracious host, Boundary Bay Brewery provided a fine beer for the grand finally and we had a good turnout in boats.
This years photo extravaganza is in the form of an online movie. There are three download speeds:
The longer the download the better the quality of picture, sound and the larger the picture (A little tip...wait for the credits to run at the end.).Other race photos can be found at the North American 6m link just below.
Enjoy - Dave

Photo Gallery of this years 2002 Lipton CupThe Lipton Cup is sponsored by the Seattle Yacht Club and they provide the committee boat and run a well organized race every year. Our thanks to them for this event. The gallery is a collection of photos taken during and after the race. We were blessed with a visit this year from Olin Stephens (94 years old), one of the foremost Six Meter designers in the world. A fine meal prepared by Chef Rick and a great group of sailors and boats to race with.
When you enter the galley, use the navigation bar at the top of the page to move between the thumbnail galleries and the enlarged pictures (you'll get the hang of it). Some of the photos on the web site have been cropped and digitally altered for the web site. Dave
