Sailing on the Edge

Sailing on the Edge
Three one-man racing yachts on West Kirby marine lake with Hilbre Island in the background. I was absolutely amazed at how far these guys could lean over and how tightly they can turn, almost pivoting on the marker buoys.

Very good capture Roy, yes modern sail boats are far ahead of the first man made.

I have been sailing in the past in Plymouth sound. It makes a very pleasant day. I did canoe from Drakes island to Plymouth Hoe too which was quite an experience :) Nice photo Roy. I didn't find any sail boats last visit. It was a very cold day..

Thanks Steve. Never fancied sailing - or getting in any vessel much less than 1000 tonnes for that matter! These guys were there most of Friday afternoon.

Sure they can bend over and turn quite good. Living a few 100m's from the tradefair grounds where the Interboot is held annually, I can not prevent learning some about that fight for inches and seconds from design...
