This week's picture quiz is a little different because there are two answers to the question, "Where am I?"
The first answer requires you to work out where I am in this picture. There are clues littered all over this blog so that should be easy.
The second part is to tell me where and when this picture was taken.
That's a bit harder. Obviously I didn't take the picture myself (because I'm in it.) And I don't actually know where and when it was taken. But I suspect there are enough visual clues for one of my clever readers to be able to find the answer.
The picture is being used as a header photo by Regatta Networks the online regatta management tool provided by US Sailing. For example, check out the Regatta Networks home page for the 2013 Laser Atlantic Coast Championship being sailed this weekend at Little Egg Harbor YC, New Jersey and you will see a version of this photo.
So where am ?
Clue #1 - posted Saturday 4:08pm - I did write about this regatta on my blog.
Clue #2 - posted Saturday 5:43pm - Dennis Conner's bowman.
Clue #3 - posted Sunday 6:40am - The photo was taken at a multi-day regatta but you can see which exact day it was.
Clue #4 - posted Sunday 7:00am - There is one sailor, whose sail you can see in the photo, with whom I have only raced a regatta once (as best as I can remember.)
Clue #5 - posted Sunday 10:44am - The photo I have used in this post is not identical to the one being displayed on the Regatta Networks site. No, really, this is a major clue. If you can work out why this is you will be well on the way to solving the puzzle.
