As Fall began and Summer ended, I wanted to capture the essence of a summer regatta. In this painting, the yachts are racing to the second mark, with their sails set for a "broad reach."  This means the wind is coming from slightly behind them and to the left as you gaze at this painting (starboard if you're on the yacht). It's always an exciting leg because that's when most of the yachts reach their top speed. It's an exhilarating feeling of flying. And because these yachts can't have their engines on, all you hear is the wind, the waves, the birds, the clicking of the winches, and groaning of the lines whenever the crews adjust their sails for greater speed to pass each other and get into a position of "clean air." 

Clean air is when no other yacht is blocking the wind from hitting your sail and slowing you down. The yachts furthest to the left have the cleanest air in this painting.

 

There's a showdown going on between the orange, deep yellow, and turquoise yachts, with the turquoise one sneaking up behind and likely blocking the deep yellow one's air. The bright yellow and green yachts in the distance are battling it out. And the magenta yacht is clearly in the lead with the cleanest air heading straight for the 3rd and final mark.

Phew! I think I need to catch my breath! How about you?
