    WOW – now that looks decidedly scary to me but I guess it’s all part of the fun for the crew! Wonderful photo – you’ve really caught the action at it’s best.
    Cheers

  • Thank you very much Peter – I’d much prefer to be taking the photo than to be perched on board on of these !

    Great action

  • Many thanks Kala – there’s going to be plenty more action before this race finishes, somewhere in Europe.

    Marvellous shot Roy, looks a bit rough out there!

    Cool action shot Roy – Love it xx

  • Many thanks Gail – for the comment and the favourite ! Glad I’m not heading for Cape Horn on one of these. In my sea days I went twice round the Horn, admittedly in quite large cargo ships and I can honestly say I must have been very lucky because I have struck worse weather going up the English channel !

    Zowie! How did it all turn out? Excellent catch, Roy.

  • Thank you kindly for your comment Sheila. How did it turn out ? The’ve got a long way to go yet on this leg to Cape Horn. One yacht ‘Abudabi ’ had to shelter behind Gt. Barrier Island where we lived, with a collapsed bulkhead ( very painful !) and the then leader ’ Sanyo ’ the Chinese boat, has turned back to NZ with one of its rudders ripped out leaving NZ’s ’ Campa ’ in the lead. I don’t think she will win – there’s a long way to go yet. I think the race finishes somewhere in Europe, could be Spain.

    Gosh that has a lean on, great shot.

  • Thanks very much Gary – the few times I’ve been on yachts I’ve always had a queasy feeling when they start to lean. Give me a stinky old engine anytime, preferably two of them !
