Your captures of these events create no end of excitement, Ken. Here the close crop heightens the tension, enhanced by the central participant's body language, and the wonderful detail of the catamaran balanced on the tip of its propeller and the corner of one hull. Superb.

Well-timed action, and composition with the boat turning into frame. You can see the concentration on their faces, and the second boat is nicely de-focussed.

The lens has compressed the perspective perfectly Ken, giving the impression they are all tail to tail, awesome movement on the water and determination on the faces.
