Canons boom. The races begin. We sit atop Tivoli on the boat deck enjoying the cool evening and watching the Wednesday night races. J-boats of all sizes, multiple classes, race around the marks placed on the Severn River Inlet. Spinnakers fly and boats speed around the course in tight clusters.
As the sun fades this stately schooner ghosts pass, heading home.
Typical Annapolis summer evening.
