Sydney Sailing - The Photos

Now back in the UK a few pictures and a very short video as promised of sailing the America's Cup boat Spirit in Sydney.

Actually the first picture isn't of Spirit but two Volvo 60s - what was EDF Language and Education:
Here we are heading under the Harbour Bridge just prior to raising the jib - it was too windy for the main:
But still we managed a good 7 - 8 knots of boat speed:

You can get a feel from this short video - taken as we passed the harbour entrance. I had just finished my go at the wheel and handed over to another guest (who turned out to be a Professor of Philosophy):

Finally had to leave the boat and see her sail off into the sunset....
