Fall Sailing Brings Out the Hardcore Opti Racers

It was an epic day on Narragansett Bay last Sunday, and racers from Sail Newport weren’t afraid to brave the conditions in some Optis. Here’s a mashup of scenes from the day. Make sure to pay attention at the two-minute mark to see just how massive these swells outside Newport Harbor really were — and how tiny the Optis seem in comparison.

Anyone who thinks sailing is boring clearly hasn’t been out on a day like this!
