Photography from the Coconut Grove Sailing Club Annual Meeting

View of Biscayne Bay from the back deck of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club

 

The photograph shown above is one of the reasons why I joined the Coconut Grove Sailing Club.  When I first visited the Club and saw this beautiful view, I knew this was the place for me.  Oh, and there are really great sailing opportunities here.  This last weekend I photographed the CGSC’s annual meeting.  This year’s event was well attended with standing room only and many issues were discussed.  The Commodore of the Club, Alyn Pruett, led the meeting:
