Gothic Chicago skyline at dusk, weather front over Lake Michigan on Saturday, November 15, 2008, showing rain cloud tendrils descending
Now you can show your friends what it looks like when you encounter a dark weather front out on the lake…
This picture captures the ghostly tendrils descending from the gray skies where a gap in the cloud cover is indicated by sunlight highlighting the phenomenon.
The distinctly gothic elements of the cloudy overcast, dark water, and architecture of the distant Chicago skyline on the horizon on a cold and gloomy November afternoon contrasted sharply with Roy Disney’s “Morning Light” sailing documentary playing in local theaters at the time.
In spirit of upcoming Beneteau 36.7 North American Championship in Chicago…
after racing 100’s of miles…
Fog 26219, Stingray 250 and Tango 258 – Beneteau 36.7’s
racing within boatlengths of each other through Grays Reef and Straits of Mackinac
…and only miles to go to finishing!
another great day
long courses well-chosen to provide more racing, amidst rapidly changing conditions
spectacular views, interesting weather challenges
another great night
Mooring cans in secret location are covered with snow, destined for Monroe Harbor as the weather warms.
