Why Captain Doug Ward and Newport PhotoBoat
Inside the ropes of a race course is serious business and only a few are afforded entry.  Captain Doug is one of them. 

  • United States Coast Guard 50 Ton Master License

  • 100% focus on what’s happening on the race course and its surroundings

  • Expertly tracks racers in tight quarters adjusting to wake, wind and visibility disruptions 

  • Quietly listens and adapts to creative stylings and sensitivities of the photographer

  • Masterfully recognizes, prepares and reacts to multi-directional high speed closure rates of racers while matching boat speeds

  • Doug is a true professional, calm, quiet, friendly and attentive, with a perfect safety record; he has a 6th sense on the water, a photographer’s eye for composition and experience to get you where you want to go
