Jim Vaiknoras/Gloucester Daily Times. Gloucester: Sometimes it takes a big sacrifice to do our jobs: we need to head out into hurricanes, blizzards; we endure long hours, we work outside in the cold and in the heat. Other times we make small sacrifices like getting cold sea water into our shoes. Last June, I had the pleasure of covering the Seine races during Fiesta in Gloucester. The sky and setting gave an old world feel to the event. After watching a few of the launches, I realized that I needed to get on the west-facing side of the boats to take the photos I wanted. I got the names of the crew of one of the boats and waited. As they prepared to shove off I stepped back into what I thought was 2-3 inches of water, but it turned out to be 15 inches of water. It was a small sacrifice indeed.
