12 Photos from the 2014 Zamami Jima Sailing Sabani Race
The three day visit was completed today.
There was a new twist in the race because the seas got rough.
Instead of sailing from Zamami to Okinawa Island, the course was changed.
Tonight, I'll just post some photos of the different boats and scenery, I observed.
It would be impossible, for me to get photos of them all, sailing.
That's because, I'm bouncing around on an escort boat.
The Umimaru, is the team, I went along with for the occasion.
They have enough sense, to turn-in early every evening. But, I don't.
They go home and get some sleep and I, mingle with sabani folks I never met before.
Well, I make lots of friends and, drink plenty of beer. Sometimes the local awamori, too.
Everybody wants their picture taken, while they are racing.
So, I tell them, I'll see what I can do.
If the light isn't right, when I'm looking for the Umimaru, I turn around.
And, shoot some other boats, too.
When it's all over, I have thousands of photos to process.
There are always plenty of them for the team, I was assigned to.
And maybe, I got some of my other drinking buddies, too !
