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!

Check your slip reservation.  Page 7.  They nabbed the dock master for parole violations.

Scanned this picture I found in my Dad's old files. 

 

From Left to right:

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".

In USA
Totally booted from stream feed.
Main S/H Race website down so no tracker - which wasn't working anyway.
Time for bed.
