Van Uden - Cowes Week 2018

By James_C
A bit of action from Cowes Week 2018 photographed as an experiment through my APM 100-45 ED APO binoculars with Hyperion 8-24mm Universal-Zoom MarkIV.

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

Update to explain the action:
From memory - Van Uden had just tacked. The crew are still moving across to the new windward rail whilst the guys on the coffee grinders are winching in the last few inches of the genoa. Others are tidying up.

Jennnnn,

Yes - binoculars. I normally use them to follow the racing and anything else that catches my eye. I bought an adapter so that I could attach my camera to the Hyperion eyepiece.Smile
