Lake Hopatcong Boat Racing Pictures from the OPA www.oparacing.org 2013 Race
The 2013 Boat Races come to the Lake Forrest Yacht Club on Lake Hopatcong NJ. It has been the hosting home of the NJ Wakeoff as well as other larger lake community events. It was the perfect location for such a large undertaking.
The OPA (Offshore Powerboat Association) races on Lake Hopatcong NJ in 2013. Wow what a show! What a sport! I loved the speed...the noise...working from the water.
As a local photographer, we are able to donate the use of one of our boats and ride with the race organizers and track judges. The task at hand was to scan the lake depth with the depth finder and plot a safe course for the race boats.
Having the credentials to be on the course and being utilized as a sweeping boat, allowed for some great photos at different perspectives. Shooting from the water into land tells the larger story.
Most of our shooting was done on Saturday, May 11,2013. The rain did not stop the racer's and it didn't stop Zealimages.net from capturing the memories. Here we have two racers in an open cockpit boat riding wide open...the final lap very deserving of a fist pump finish in the heavy rain!
Up-close and personal...wanted to provide something more than the traditional racing shots. I knew that getting both props out of the water on a clam fresh water lake may not happen, so we went in and shot close on the open boats to make it personal and memorable.
