I spent yesterday afternoon wandering around the Mayland’s Yacht Club. Watching a race and getting sunburnt.
Naturally I had my trusty Pentax with me and I was able to take a few shots of, not only the boats, but also a number of other sights which caught my eye.
So this week I will be posting images from two sources. Sculpture by the Sea you have already been introduced to and now the first from my Maylands visit.
I found a “Mirror” class yacht just going with the breeze. The crew just lazing, playing with the water.
After an hour of preparation on shore, the rest of the fleet was ready to hit the water for the start of the race.
About half a dozen “Mirrors” and a whole lot more single-manned “Laser” yachts were entering the river. Just as a light sea breeze was beginning to blow.
Watching a yacht race can be like watching grass grow for the spectators so not all of the images in this series will be of people mucking around in boats.
Tomorrow I will be showing off an unexpected friend.
