The San Diego-based Ancient Mariners Sailing Society put on the 47th Yesteryear Regatta on May 8. Photographer and sailor Janie Noon crewed aboard Chimaera, camera in hand, and sent us the following photos.
Janie writes: “I have sailed with the Ancient Mariners Sailing Society for six or seven years — what a gift for my retirement years! I do take photos as I am crewing and use them to produce our newsletter, Albatross, all for love — and have been thrilled to have my photos in Latitude 38. This is the second time for Schooner Cup, my favorite race. Jerry Newton and the schooner people are the best ever! For most other events I sail on a Sparkman & Stephens Driscoll-built racing sloop or a Kettenburg 50. Lucky me!”
Janie’s most recent photo in Latitude 38 is of Bill of Rights and Age of Grace competing in the 2021 America’s Schooner Cup on March 27. Check it out on the opening spread of Racing Sheet in the May issue.
