Guernsey 22.09.2012

Photos from the North Beach race on Saturday.

Appologies to Lets Tango and (I think) Nosferatu for getting in your way down the back straight.

Cracking race, unfortunately we didn't photograph the mass start as we weren't expecting it - but imprinted in my mind is the image of several awesome powerboats in a line with Castle Cornet behind them.

Fantastic shots Andy, I was helping John Randal on the east arm keep track on what was going on.
Well done to all involved it was a great days racing shame Sunday had to be cancelled .
At least everyone has got time to fix their boats now.

That Honda pic isn't racing, it's moronic driving!!

I think it's a great testament to the racers over here that we've had a whole season with such a mixed fleet and no 'racing incidents' to speak of at all

Snowboarding, I'm not gay haha

Fuel tank will be replaced in due course, we're gonna keep it ready to rock all winter and get some testing in when the weather allows, get a prop or 2 worked to suit. Hyped for next season!
