Action from Cowes Week 2019

By James_C
Cowes Week isn't happening this year so I thought I'd bring you some action from last year. There were 42 Classes starting on the Royal Yacht Squadron line and on lines set by committee boats across The Solent.
Main picture 13th August - Redwings have just started whilst other keelboat classes gather. Other classes can be made out gathering and starting on the far side of The Solent.
V1 12th August keelboats racing and Class 0 yachts racing
V2 12th August a mixture of yachts racing and preparinging to start
V3 13th August Drumbeat, sandwiched in between Redshift and Furiosa from Class 0, approaches the finnish and wins the Contessa 32 class race.
V4 13th August The dutch Class 0 entry Barake GP completes a gybe

Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoy what you see.

Your lens allows you to do some very fine (WIDE) wide images-- Impressive!

Thank you Francis and Jennnn.

Sadly, my Canon EF 24-105 is away for repairs as the shutter mechanism has gone on strike.... I'm looking forward to getting it back.
