“You don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note.” – Doug Floyd

  Here, wooden schooners are jockeying for position at the start line on a glorious July day. This is the Nova Scotia Schooner Races, Mahone Bay, 2015. The annual schooner races last a week, but this particular race day was dedicated to women skippers.  Each of these schooners had an able woman at the helm and they were racing for the Willa Creighten Memorial Cup. What a day!

A nod to International Women’s Day.

    Very interesting! I think Australia could do with a day devoted to women skippers, I don’t think we have that. What a beautiful sky!

    That’s a wonderful shot – I can hear the rush of the water and the spritzy salt air on my face. And sailing is a great illustration of what harmony means – harmony with the elements is the aim and without harmony amongst the crew there is a dunking ahoy!

      You are right, Fiona! Luckily, there was plenty of harmony on board that day. The skipper’s husband knew when to voice his opinions and when to clap his hand over his mouth ๐Ÿ˜‰
