Classic Yacht Regatta 2013, Melbourne

Our 2013 Regatta is over now, but for a taste of the action, here's some pics I took of the finish of the final race (a pursuit) on Monday.

Here they come:


Sayonara (1898) and Oenone (1905):






Fair Winds:


Fair Winds, close up:


Zephyr:


Certainly a good day to be out on the water. None of these folks could catch us that day.

Nice one Cam. Looks like more fun than a certain 24hourer I could mention.

Speaking of which I'm delivering Windchaser up to Lake Macquarie over the weekend for next weeks race. Much better time of year for it though after summer temps a couple of weeks back it is now unseasonably cool and rain is predicted. To boot, I'm informed that for some reason the Chaser is temporarily without a dodger.

Never mind. It is still a ten hour trot up the coast and that suits me just fine.
