Fowey Classics 2010 Race 1 Photos

During each race there was a short period during the pre-start when could poke my head out of the hatch (keeping it low to avoid the boom of course) and take a few photos of some of the other classic yachts.

As you can see it was a bit of a wet and wild day. We were told F5 gusting F6 but it was more like F6 with the odd lull of F5 - a lot of fun!

Is the second picure of Surprise?

Having read about her would really like to see her under sail, how did she cope with the brisk conditions?

Yes! They sailed rather well I gather from the results.

They weren't in our class or group (strange concept, will explain later) but finished both races with a 1st and a 2nd.
