cool, maybe I'll bump into you there. When they first came, I was sitting on the edge of the pier where the ships are berthed right now. I may do the same thing again.

I assume it will be crowded. hopefully they'll have a press area. i'll be there with my 400 2.8L IS if i do go..

It wasn't that crowded when they were coming in, so I can assume it won't really be the same for them leaving either...

Hey guys, I'm covering the race as a guest of Puma so I'll be around Saturday as well it looks like (at fan pier) unless I opt to go to Long Island to cover the outer harbor. Wanna try to meet up in front of Puma City @ noon or something for a quick meet & greet?

May 16th is when the Volvo race restarts.

What is this going to be like? I've love to get some shots from the other side of the harbor, with the city behind the boats. How do you think it would be from Piers Park or the Hyatt at the airport?


You can take my 100-400 L away when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

Sure, I can meet up at noon. We're planning on being around there then!

Well, if Scott says there is more going on during the day, it should be pretty busy down there...all 7 boats will leave at the same time, then you'll have the marshalls boats next to them, press boats, and finally all the private / rented boats out there too, flanking the competitors. You should be able to get some good shots from the Hyatt, more so than the Piers Park (as once they are on the move, you won't get many decent shots with a city in the background, if any!!). You'll just need a decent lens!

Pier's park offered a perfect view of both the arrivals and the Pro/Am.

No. If you're a member of the press and have an ID to show it then you're all set.
