Friday night gig race

I followed the gig race last night.
The race was from Guthers Island to Lowertown St Martins.
It was the mens race and was a great race to watch being a shorter race than the normal Nut Rock race.
The shorter distance meant for a close race and coxs were looking for the best line to get out of the strong tides rushing down the channel.
Bonnet won the race with the Czar coming in a very close second.
On the boat trip back from St Martins we took a trip around the Galatea which was moored out in the bay.
When back on dry land the cloud parted briefly to allow the sun to come out for a few minutes which created a dramatic looking sunset.

Back Online

Its been a while since I have posted on here, but I have been taking pics in the time that I have been offline and have sorted out my pick of the best of them to put on here tonight.
These pics are all from the past 2 weeks or so and show well the lovely weather we have had so far this summer.
There have been some great sunsets and I have a couple of pics of these too.
I hope to get back to posting a bit more regularly again now, but in a slightly different format perhaps...
Hope you all enjoy the pics!
