Had to crop and resize them so they lost a little of their integrity but these shots I liked most of all...

I'm not quite sure what this young lady was saying to her crew butif look could tell a story, I could hazard a guess...

I should explain here that the first two shots were pre-race, while the girls were being lined up, 5 boats across, and, in quite windy conditions too. The poor starter had his hands full trying to get them away as its only done by sight where the front of each boat is level with all the others. It didn't help that the wind was a crosswind either. Even after the the race started, it was actually quite hard to get an "action" shot as the boats headed directly away from my position so you either got what looked like a much smaller boat or only one or two girls making the effort,, and you don't get a lot of time to take your shots as these vessels go like heck. That plus the never ending hoards of people who love to walk infront of you just the the thing goes "click".

Oh well, I suppose I chose the hobby,, not them...

This is about as action packed as it got...

Meanwhile, on our side of the lake, what seemed to be another actionless shot in actual fact is quite a unique event - a 'one off', so to speak. These radio controlled people are about to be raced by these yachts. Note the special antennae growing from their hands to receive their instructions from the yachts as they line up ready to go... (Just a little humour to lighten up the day...)
