Today was calm and cloudy, which does not make for good exciting pics, however here are few anyway!

No we decided not to take to the water as our engine is missing its top 1k revs. The day before when the loss happened out there we easily managed to get back home and take pics on the way, but going out there knowing your engine is bad, especially when we know how manic these events are with crap spectator boats is not a good decision and so we thought better of it and stayed dry.

A real shame the sun was out and the pics would have been amazing ..... next year! I hope!
