Sketching at the Wooden Boat Festival

I actually managed two sketches Friday morning, between a late start and lots of conversation with passersby while I sat on the dock next to the Lady Washington. When I first arrive the sun was in my eyes, so I turned around and sketched the Adventuress (sails down, flags out). Later I over-sketched her sails in, because she is so majestic under sail. 
When the sun rose higher and I was able to see the Lady Washington out of the glare, I sketched what was closest to me - the figurehead. Only the very best sailors will be able to spot the mistake I started to make on the Adventuress, but caught myself before I got too far.
