Readers of this blog know I post a lot of sailing photographs.  The reason is simple: I sail and I love the look of a sailboat in the water.

Sailing is a year-round sport.  Most people associate it with summer and bright sunny days.  But in truth real sailors practice their sport year round, even in winter.  

Sailboat racing is also a year-round sport.  For most of us, it is confined to summer and nice weather in the spring and fall.  

For students in a few high school in New Jersey however, sailing is a two season sport--spring and fall.  During the summers, true sailors may sail on their own, but during the school year, these schools have teams (technically clubs), where students practice and participate in regattas. They raise money for boats and equipment, get transported by parents, and accommodated by friendly yacht clubs.  I know this because I see the students sailing almost every day and both my children participated in sailing in high school. 

Given my interest in the sport, it is no surprise that I have photographed student sailors many times in spring and autumn.  I did so this past spring and most recently this past week.  To show some of these student sailors in action,  I have created gallery another for your viewing pleasure entitled "High School Sailing 2019."   

I hope you check it out and enjoy it just as much as the others!
