2008 NOOD Regatta off of Marblehead















I spent a few days photographing the NOOD Sailing Regatta off Marblehead. The event was sponsored by Sperry Topsiders. I think I got some pretty cool shots. The weather was ideal for sailing and shooting. A links to the gallery is below....

Hi there,

Great shot (wish I could see more, but looks like the link is gone now). I am hoping to get some shots of this year's regatta...I live in M'head and am trying to find out the best time of day to catch the sails from my vantage point at Chandler Hovey Park. Would you happen to know where Ic an find out the race start and route? I checked the NOOD website, but didn't find anything. -Kelly M.

Thanks Kelly! There are 3 or 4 lines and they are pretty far out. I don't think you would be able to see them from Marblehead at all. If the rain ever breaks, I will go out the photograph the races. Feel free to follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter to see photos from the races. What type of attorney are you? Cheers, Leighton
