On the water!

As some of you know I am involved in Cork Week 2010 as Website Editor and the event kicked off last Saturday with the racing starting yesterday in lovely sunshine with some good wind.  I went out on the Harbour Course and took some shots - lovely to see blue skies and colourful spinnakers in the harbour.
There was some tight racing in the J/109 Fleet - two boats rounding the top mark by Cobh (pictured above).
This is a photo of the winning J/109 yesterday - Jeroboam skippered by local sailor - Rob O'Leary.  Pictured turning the top mark by Cobh (Cobh Cathedral in the background).

I am delighted I managed to get a few hours on the water yesterday as today the weather is grey/gray! and there is a chance of rain!.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.
