Great captures of the (fast!!) action! I can almost hear the roar of the motors and feel the spray...

Really like the second race pictures - looks like the light was better and also your sight-lines. It does look like you had a great time. My two favorites are the first one of the second race (out of the water) and the spray of the third one - quite spectacular.
