Close encounters of the powerboat kind


Last Saturday and Sunday saw the opening rounds of the Royal Yacht Association National Powerboat championship, 2009, take place at Carr Mill Dam just outside of St. Helens. I went on the Sunday to try my hand at action photography, however it seems that most of the action was on the Saturday with only a few of the boats in the water on the Sunday.

I don't know what class these ones are but they were the largest and the loudest out on the reservoir. Boat  34 rounds the buoy ahead of number 111 in the last race of the day.
