Emeraude at OOYC Invitational Regatta – August 2010
These are pictures from the last mark during the last of three races. We had come from way back in the pack under spinnaker and charged up to the mark. We lucked out and caught a changing breeze coming off land. Everyone converged and we were caught up in what some veteran sailors describe as the biggest pile-up they had ever experienced. Our spinnaker became hooked on the down-wind boat and we rounded the mark with them along with the up-wind boat as a tight group.
Watch the slide show:
This picture from the Medina paper from 1985 shows my dad Ray Leonard (looking aft), ahead is my brother Darren Leonard, and I am at the helm. By 1985 we were heavily into sailing as a sport.
