Pre-Opera House Cup Race Scenes

Took my boat over to Brant Point today to watch the boats heading out to the race. I've never seen the channel so crowded before. Every conceivable boat was there milling around watching the boats head out to the starting line. It was so crowded that the Coast Guard had to clear a path for the ferries.

The clogged channel-

Standing room only for the spectators at Brant Point-

This little red chopper was buzzing around all day taking pictures-

Not a breath of wind out in the sound at the start of the race. I believe it was delayed for over two hours.

The Indiscretion 2 came into the harbor for a brief stay this afternoon. I believe she belongs to the Forbes family. Can anyone confirm this?
