A moment of drama


During the first of the two 225HP races the Scream-It boat took the turn at the albert dock and then slowed right down as the navigator, Nicki Sanders, was thrown from the boat, as you can see there is only one helmet in the boat compared with the two in the Heights of Abraham boat. Fortunately she was rescued and went on to compete in the second race of the day.

That's a priceless capture Les. Great symetry.
Les Auld: Thanks Ada, appreciate the comment.
Good follow up to yesterdays shot Les, presumably being thrown out is one of the hazards of the sport.
Les Auld: Happened a couple of times on Sunday Brian, thanks for the comment.

Blimey.. scary stuff. I can well imagine how these guys can get bounced out! Well spotted.
Les Auld: Thanks Alan, appreciate the comment.
Couple of excellent action shots, Les. The colour is so vibrant, and the images are really sharp.(:o)
Les Auld: Had to work on them a bit Rosalyn as it was quite a dull day really. Thanks for the comment.
Excellent sharp action shot. Glad to hear the navigator was ok.
Les Auld: Thanks PAt, one of the hazards of the job I suppose.
