Fab pics Richard. I see that you were on the right course . Reflector buried into the coastguard station in cliffs.

Thanks, Andy.

I've done a video too!

It's 13MB so I'd recommend right-clicking and "Save Target As..."

What a day - stunning pics and the video is great - that ketch called Solana is lovely - would love something like that - they look so graceful.

How do the Yachties react to a hooligan in a RIB??? My local yacht club would only let me join when I mentioned the word "diving" apparently they don't see a RIB as fit for anything else!!!

Great video Richard, looks like the perfect day for it.

I think the shot you have at 3:14min is fantastic

Superb photos!!! That must have been amazing to see that in person. How many yachts are in that race? Looks like their should be enough to retrieve Helen of Troy!

Thanks for the comments

It's an amazing spectacle and honestly the pictures don't do it justice. 1,700 yachts according to the official website http://www.roundtheisland.org.uk/

Viewing the back of the fleet from up the Solent is an amazing sight... like sharks teeth on the horizon, then once you're amongst the yachts it's wall-to-wall sailcloth!

Know what you mean about looking like sharks teeth on the horizon...took these photos precisely because we thought the same although having resized them, the yatchts on the horizon may not be very visible...I'll give it a go anyway!! Did see a few ribs out and about...we are a blue 4.8m RIBCRAFT..."Marlin Monroe"...maybe we saw you!

Excellent vid Richard - and nice to see you on the Sunday in Yarmouth.

There was an amazing site going east through the race when they were all coming back to cowes with Spinakers up.

Took a couple of pictures earlier in the day, the first one actually has a guy at the top of the mast, must have had a good view!
