Block Island Race Week XXV, organized by the Storm Trysail Club, was held from June 24 to June 28, 2013. Always one of New England’s finest sailing venue, this Race Week marked a very special occasion, the commemoration of its 25th anniversary.

On Wednesday, June 26 I had the opportunity of watching the races up close in the Race Week XXV Media boat as a representative of the Block Island Times. My assignment was to photograph the sailboats as they competed in Wednesday’s races. I have photographed many aspects of Block Island over the years, but this was my first experience taking photos that close to the races.
