Dueling Cameras in Chestertown, MD





Roger Prichard, owner and skipper of Gwylan, a lovely 
wooden Herreshoff ketch from Riverton, NJ, snapped
 this photo of Spartina while Huck and I sailed with Steve
up and down, then back and forth, on Chester River, just off
the piers of Chestertown.  We had a perspective of the 
Downrigging Fleet that few other visitors were lucky to have.





Steve Earley, owner and skipper of Spartina, a lovely 
wooden, home-built, gaff-rigged yawl from Chesapeake, VA, 
snapped this photo of Gwylan while Huck and I sailed with Steve
up and down, then back and forth, on Chester River, just off
the piers of Chestertown.  We had a perspective of the 
Downrigging Fleet that few other visitors were lucky to have.

    Amazing. I get the first paragraph about how Roger shot you while you were sailing with Steve.

    But the second paragraph is fantastic. Steve shot you while you were sailing with Steve on Roger's boat! How ddid he manage that? Is it a trick with mirrors? Is this the first selfie of someone on two boats at once?
