15 December - Brisk Southerly

Olly 001


The 15th of December will be remembered by most for the turkey lunch and the excellent racing on a brisk overcast day.  Oliver may remember this day for other reasons, as he spent quite some time in the water during the first race.

Unfortunately, the majority of the action took place on the far bank, but your correspondent was lucky enough to capture some of it.  It might be argued that the picture above represented the main event.  I think that 4.9 for technical difficulty and 4.5 for artistic expression for Oliver's feat would be well deserved!

The remainder of the pictures are, I regret, somewhat more mundane.  It was not the best day on which to capture action in vivid colour.  Nevertheless, here they are.
