Sunset Regatta (4b) Hunter 22 Valkyrie at the mark, Elephant Butte Lake

Hunter 22 "Valkyrie" approaches government mark no. 7 at the Sunset regatta, with the J/24 sloop "Mustang" in background. (4057)
Hunter 22 approaching the mark while Elephant Butte Lake was experienced extremely low water levels. Valkyrie eventually won the regatta on corrected time, and finished only six minutes behind a much larger boat after more than four hours of racing. (4058)
Hunter 22 at the mark (4059). The "Sunset Regatta" replaced the usual "Sunrise Regatta" due to very low lake levels making it not feasible to have 25- and 50-mile races.
