Newport Regatta

Thanks to Eli Boat for pointing me at the source of pictures of the sailing at the Newport Regatta last weekend. Turns out that he (in a 110) and I were actually racing on the same circle on Saturday and Sunday.

As they say, if there's no photo it didn't happen. So here's definite proof that I do stay ahead of some of the kids some of the time, I do get my butt over the side of the boat some of the time, and I do sail my boat flatter than some of the kids some of the time.

That Rocks! And we finally get to see an almost-viewable picture of you. I'm starting to think you're like that HoaxBigfoot with only grainy unfocused pictures available of the infamous tillerman.

You are correct. I was Bigfoot. Now I'm Paris Hilton.

I would have been aware if Paris Hilton was at the party Tillerman..

What's up with the sperm watermarks?

Tillerman said...

The watermarks are artifacts generated by the company that took all the photos in order to prevent unscrupulous individuals from stealing the digital images and posting them on their own websites or whatever.

I don't feel too guilty about it though as I have also ordered an extremely expensive print of one of those images.

Great photos T-man. It's unusual to get such great shots.

Tillerman said...

Yup. This guy from Wavelength Studios was at the Laser North Americans too and covers a lot of the major regattas around. The second one is the best photo I've ever seen of me racing a Laser which is why I'm buying the print.

Oh, I understand why they are there. But sperm shape?

Tillerman..you sexed up the dossier !
Photo sn07_laser_020 is perhaps more revealing ?

Tillerman said...

jsw - I really don't know what to make of your problem of seeing sperm everywhere except to advise seeking professional help.

anonymous - "sexed up the dossier"? Well, yes it is true that there are other pictures of me on the Wavelength Studios site and the one you reference does show me rounding the windward mark with a slight leeward heel. (The one before that is even worse.) But hey it's my blog and if I want to show photos of me sailing well I will do.
