An annual event, held in Itoman, Okinawa, Japan, these are what you could call, enviroment-friendly sailboats. The only sources of power, are wind and paddles. Photo taken November 10, 2011 as the boats raced towards a buoy.
this is coming in off the Detroit River toward the canals in Gibraltar, MI where our boat is kept. To the left (not seen in the photo) is Lake Erie Boat Ramp. I have captured so many amazing sunsets. Such a quite and peaceful ending to a long day on the boat, coming off the river toward the canals is my favorite time of day.
