Photographer's Note

This was also taken during Cowes week 2006. The X-type is one of the class that races during all the week. These boats have to repect a certain amount of technical spec, as being made primarely of wood. They are usualy old boats ... I have heard that their owners spend the year to work on their boat to prepare this event !
As it is one of the smallest class, the races take place near the shore. This was taken just before the starts of the race. All the boat have to be on side of an imaginary line ... This photography was taken during a "false start", as to many boat had already cross the line before the start was given. this idea being to be the closest possible to the line when the start is given ...

See previous photography of the same event.

This was scanned from the original.
I did struggle a little bit due to the light at this moment of the day ... any workshop to improve this shoot will be welcome !
