Powerboat Racing in a spectacular setting...

13th September 2013

If you want to see some offshore Powerboat Racing in a spectacular setting... that'll be Guernsey,then!

Race eleven of the Guernsey Powerboat Association's 2013 Championship showcased the impressive waters that this small Channel Island can offer the sport. It was as if everything had been planned to be 'just right'.

The Little Russel (that's the name of these waters if you aren't local) were slightly choppy, so that was the first thing that was going to help make action pics. Then the light was perfect, nice and bright to make the colours sing.

But the best part of all for me (talking as a photog) was that there were two visiting Cruise ships anchored in the background whilst their passengers enjoyed a few hours onshore.

So it was a simple task for me to consider the best viewpoint to take advantage of the superb backdrop. When that was sorted I couldn't fail :-)

My efforts are now online. I hope you also get a feel for the beautiful place that I'm so lucky to live in.
