MDI Community Sailing Center

Posted by on Jul 14, 2014 in Sailing

The MDI Community Sailing Center (MDICSC) is an independent non-profit organization located on Clark Point Road in Southwest Harbor, Maine. It offers maritime education and boating instruction to the general public of Mount Desert Island and surrounding coastal communities. Janice and I are enrolled in the adult beginners sailing course and loving it. And what's not to love. We walk a mile from our house to the center and then get to go sailing for two hours twice a week in some of the most beautiful waters in the world! If you've never sailed before, of if you are just a little rusty and need a refresher course, checkout MDICSC.

MDICSC Executive Director Glenn Squires asked if I would take some pictures of kids and adults during a lesson and I was more than happy to oblige. Seriously. What's more fun than photography? Going out on the water to do photography! A big thank you to Glenn and also Dave Estes for taking me out in the chase boat anywhere I wanted to go to get these photos. I shot them using a Canon 5D3 with a Canon 70-200mm zoom combined with a 1.4X Teleconverter.
