Fayerweather Yacht Club Race – 6/30/2010

Recently, we partnered with the Fayerweather Yacht Club to become the official photographers for Park City Regatta. The regatta is held to raise funds for Swim Across the Sound, an event held by St. Vincents Medical Center foundation to benefit cancer patients. Swim Across the Sound helps patients on a case-by-case basis with specific needs such as medication assistance, free transportation to treatments and appointments, wigs and prostheses, day-care scholarships and support groups.

This Race is co-sponsored by three yacht clubs, the Fayerweather Yacht Club, Housatonic Boat Club and the Black Rock Yacht Club. We were asked to go out on a powerboat in order to have a better vantage point during the race; we were excited to try photography from a boat, as we have never attempted that before, but asked that we be allowed to go out on a test run. It was interesting, to say the least, but after shooting for a few minutes; we really started to get the hang of shooting while being rocked in every direction. The pictures from the test run can be seen and/or purchased HERE. There is a “buy” button right above the photo which gives you the opportunity to purchase the print in a variety of sizes as well as a simple print, canvas, gallery wrapped canvas (my favorite) or famed print. If you have any questions or special requests for a certain print, please feel free to drop me an email at av@203com.com.

The photos from the regatta will up very soon.

We were happy to donate a print on canvas of the Fayerweather Lighthouse to be auctioned with all proceeds to go to the Swim Across the Sound. We had a great time doing it, and would like to thank Betsy and Catherine for the opportunity, everyone at FYC for their hospitality, and Rich Parker for the awesome ride!
