Image is believed to be at the start of the race at Glen Cove, Long Island, New York. Closeup view, starboard side amidships of CORSAIR (3) with guests probably getting ready to disembark from the vessel to their tenders. Several pulling boats seen at her gangplank along with an unidentified runabout with the bow registration #15297K which looks like a 3 cockpit Chris-Craft. The front center pulling boat is named RESOLUTE, which is visible across the inside of her transom. She is most likely a tender to a larger yacht named RESOLUTE.
