Nice colours in this Viv, against that all to common steel grey sky....everyone is working hard, including the boat, except that guy sitting aft trying to keep the wind out of his hair....or is he actually doing something down there?.....hope you get out there this weekend Viv....SmileAlan

Thanks Alan. Am just about to pick up our gear for racing. We have managed to get out on the only good days on the water - but even the good days have not been good. But the weather looks like it is going to settle a wee bit Smile Viv

Great action shot Viv!......wonderful colour and light....doesn't look like much"chop" for the strength of the wind!.........I bet they got wet!
If I see something I "SHOOT!"

Wow, is the water actually coming into the boat?

Thanks Ken and Chris. The water is sheltered between the Islands so it does not get ruffled much but the wind still honks. Chris you get a quarter wave off the stern with boats heeled like this and it is higher than the boat but a little aft so - this looks worse because of the telephoto lense - only a bit of water actually gets in the boat.

This has a real 'wow' factor. Composition is spot on and the contrast of that OMO-bright sail and colours of the boat against the background is terrific. I'd whack this into POTM. Jan

I agree with Jan, powerful shot Viv, hope all is well!
