    Thanks for posting the link to the SI story on the 1976 Miami Nassau Race. It was a hell of a ride. I just stumbled across a proof of the Leutwiler shot of us (S&S 49 Cogg-Nizant) crossing the stream. Proof quality not up to Larry's standards but gives a good idea how rough that day was. That's a lot of exposed Palmer Johnson aluminum and lead!

    Scanned this picture I found in my Dad's old files. From Left to right: Williwaw Acadia Cogg-nizant (ex-Bay Bea, I was aboard) Love Machine Almost certain it was taken at the start of the 1976 Miami-Nassau Race (SORC) just before we entered the Gulf Stream where things got nasty. Know that famous aerial shot of Love Machine getting hammered by a wave? Was taken about 30 minutes later. I know because Tom Leutwiler got a similar shot of us which I still have (blown up so can't scan). I think we had a few reefs in by the time he took the shot. Should have had one in when this was taken! FYI: Good article on the race if you search the Sports Illustrated archives for "Reaching and Retching to Nassau".
