Rounding the mark
One sure fire way of finding a cluster of boats in a yacht race is to get close to one of the marks as the yachts come together to go round. I'm glad I chose to sail yesterday and take the rib today as it took a long time for the wind to kick in and, when it did, it didn't last.
The rib driver was a youngster with little experience. A driver has to have eyes in the back of his head. I can't count the number of times we had to tap him on the shoulder to point out a yacht bearing down on us when he was distracted. You can't be distracted doing this stuff.
The third one I put up is Kelpie, a yacht I last photographed in last year's Pendennis Cup.
It's been a full-on two days in Palma and I almost missed my flight as I was still working to British time. Good to be back though, now lots of processing and writing ahead, then packing again for our Scottish fishing week.
