Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm surprised - that last shot made it seem like the village is in an old caldera and I seem to remember seeing all the houses on steep slopes. Saba is on my list, but as you've already stated, the difficult anchorage means that I'm going to wait for settled weather before visiting.

Here's the next picture:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

LaurenceU - you were awfully fast on that one, absolutely correct! My boat is registered in Cowes (but hasn't visited yet) and I figured with the American-centric view on this forum that the picture might last more than a couple of house. The game is now all yours, LaurenceU

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks Zanshin I've been following this great thread since you kicked it off. With your latest pic the red pillar box put me somewhere in the uk but not conclusively. The yellow no parking lines on the road also added weight that it was in the UK. Couldn't pick out the flag.
Certainly the building is very distinctive and I figured it as a famous institution of some sort. After a couple of searches without leads, I googled "famous yacht clubs UK" and up popped a picture of the Royal Yacht Squadron.
i've not been to the Isle of Wight but I did do some sailing at Lymington last year which is perhaps only about 40 miles or so from Cowes.
Now for the tricky bit - posting my own pic.
Laurence

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No worries (I lived in Kirribilli just over Kirribilli House for a year) - choose one that has some hints for those willing to research but don't make it quite impossible. I'm sure that there are some remarkable areas in western Oz, but we are all waiting to pounce on Google and Google Maps for just such a shot, so beware

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture



Sorry this took a while to post. I wasn't able to use photobucket at work due to security settings. Now all sorted.

So I'm thinking it will be easy to pick the city, might take a little more investigating to name the the ship!
Good luck!

Portsmouth VA looking at Norfolk from the lightship...which I think is either Portsmouth or Chesapeake.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I have the city (very far from VA), and can see that the picture was taken while the ship was in the drydock, but the picture on Google maps shows that dock to be dry, so I'm not sure which classic ship this could be.
The following snap looks like the potential location:


Any hints?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well the location is easy... and there are a couple of tall ships based there... but I can't match them to your picture. Hmmmm
