Here are some of the my best photos taken from the Richmond Yacht Club race committee boat for the 2006 Express 27 Nationals and combined Antrim 27, Ultimate 24 and Ultimate 20 Sport Boat Regatta.

RYC did a splendid job of hosting the three-day, 7-race regatta. And Dave Rasmussen and his crew ran regatta without a hitch.
