Now THIS is how water should be used.... apart from in my Whisky :)

12th May 2012

Anyone who follows this blog will know that too many of the recent Motor Sport events that I have photographed have 'featured' more than a drop of water!
In fact, even photographing the live music at the Albert Pier on Liberation Day had too much of the wet stuff.
Well, today there was even more water - I was surrounded by it! But this time the sun shone and the water was very well behaved and quite at home. It made the setting for the first round of the Guernsey Power Boat Association's 2012 Championship.

The first race was held over the Havelet Course which brought the field of thirteen boats close inshore and spectators enjoyed some good racing. There has been a fair bit of 'splashing the cash' over the winter break and there was some very flash new kit on show. This season should be the best Championship for years.
Make sure you try and catch a few of the races.
I have added a new Gallery featuring the racing:
