Cowes Week - usually during the first full week of August is a real spectacle, with over 800 boats taking part. In the past I have sailed in various classes and always had a great time.
The XOD Fleet is the largest at Cowes Week numbering between 50 - 110 boats. They are made of wood and are a one design (so all boats are the same) some date back to the 1920s. Racing is fierce and protest a regular occurrence!
Photographing from the water has its challenges, equipment getting wet, movement etc. but can be extremely rewarding.
