Championship no 6




There are always a few clues lying around that tell you
 "Today must be Championship"
Most of immigrants sail wardrobe , not to mention, the kitchen sink will be left behind on the pontoon.........


"The Boys will be firing "


the uninitiated are still smiling


the start crew are extra keen,


Cary bought a new hat with a flash for better shots of himself ....

cameras appear from everywhere....



but i win ...... again...........


The Herc blokes are Heros.....

                                                       there are interesting obstacles
 
                                                           to watch coming.........


Yes I'd be looking over my shoulder too.........

there were rivetting scenes

We're building Brad a family while he is here...Colleen


the sky was grey and the water dull....


........so we went looking for some colour....


                                                             and we found Scott .......



                                                    Jack was on the pace .........


                                       Roger looked like a solo sailor ................


                                                      Maria was a sharp as a tack............

                                           
                                                                   and feeling competitive.........


                                            We stole Lex from Tuan ................


                                                            to give Tropical Ray a helping hand


 

Maria played in the shadows....


                                                        the boys tried the head on approach...

when boredom set in we got creative...

 
                                                          as did they...a Burmuda Triangle mystery ?

                                                                              

                                                                                      
                                                         Boti and Jack listen to the Master      

                                           Situation Normal took a colourful turn .
                                    Anthony was making everyone comforable on Intrigue.. as you do...



                                                                     
.                                                                     I see no protests ..............                  
    
                                             Nobody... but nobody was arguing with Tuan

                                                  we followed Brad Colleen a lot ......


                                             Tom had a no nonsense look about him


while the young 'uns looked keen for a win

                                                 Jackson tried a few angles.........

.. he was waiting for something exciting to happen too....


                                                            Tom was a tall target ...........
                             

theres something needs adjusting there......

                                              want to crew on No Problem Tom?


                                     on Tuan  it was all business.......and a wee bit of social


                                                 Roger tried hard to make it look exciting
                                                                                

                                                             .. a bit of colour helps

                                                                                 
                                                         Rowen kept a low profile


                                                            as did Scott..........

                                                        
                                              BUT ...Ken and I were just ......
                                 " wishing and hoping,
                                                        hoping and wishing  
                                                                  our dreams would come true....oooooo......"


....and usually Jeff and team come through..oooooo

maybe ... with a little help...


Jeff would lose it...........


or the spinnaker would go...........


and since they gave us no excitement


we added a little colour to their day too....


so with just a few more random photos ,


the day was pretty much done............


except for getting back to the club house..

  1. Hi Marina,
    I'm Martin's sister Larissa (on the Sunny Coast) and I just want to say how much I love looking at your sailing photos. It's great to see all those happy faces (especially Jacksons!) and everyone having a fun time.

    Have a great weekend!
