The photo is from the Spring 1993 edition of The Laser Sailor (newsletter of the North American Laser Class) and was taken at the New Bedford YC Frostbite Regatta. Left to right: Ted Scott, John Mayer, Bob Saltmarsh, Peter Seidenberg, Mark Bear, John Bentley.
The accompanying article is titled El Cheapo Dry Suit and is about how John Mayer (second from left) is wearing a $40 "dry suit" which is actually a US Air Force Anti Exposure Suit that he bought at a government surplus store. Rubberized nylon in camouflage colors. "Ugly, Ugly, Ugly, but warm and dry."
Aaah. Those were the days.
Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sun
