Woman Driver by George Cousins

About a half-hour earlier, Jann had no intention of taking over the boat, but with a little persuasion she found it was a lot of fun! Saanich Inlet is a body of water on the west side of the Saanich Peninsula, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and this shot was taken offshore from the village of Brentwood Bay. The inlet is very popular with boaters, being very deep in most places and free from reefs and other obstructions.

Taken in June 2006, with a Sony DSCF828 camera.

    Good one George.

  • Hi Phil, many thanks..I think that was the first time she’d driven a power boat, but didn’t take long to take in stride..lol!

    Terrific action photo George and Jann looks quite at home behind the wheel. Did you have any trouble getting her to hand the controls back to you again?? LOL

  • G’day Peter old friend.. glad you liked it..she enjoyed the experience, and we had a great time.

    Great capture, George! Is it a coincidence there’s no other boats in view? :o)

  • LOL! Once she got the feel of 200 horses under her fingertips, she left them all behind! But she’s a really good and careful driver, and we had a huge body of water to play in:)

    Jann looks very comfortable in the driver’s seat George! Does she take you for a spin on the waves regularly now? Hehe. Great shot.

  • Hi Sarah Mac! She caught on very quickly and enjoyed herself, but she’s not that keen about driving it. She’d rather just enjoy the sun and let me do the work..lol! But she ’s a good co-pilot if I need an extra hand. Glad you liked the shot :)
