Yachts heading down The Solent for the annual Round the Island Race.
Taken at one the the many Cowes Weeks I’ve gone to photograph. I like the fact you can get shots like these, combining sailing boats with one of the giant container ships – in this case, coming out of the Port Of Southampton.
On Wednesday, I went over to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, for the annual sailing festival. I’ve been most years over the last 16 years, and have been trying to capture pictures since I had my first D40. I always like to look for none boat based opportunities, but it’s mainly yachts and dinghies. This year we were lucky enough to have a boat run aground on some rocks just off shore. I’m not sure how they were going to retrieve it. The full album can be found on flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHski6DExS
