Bat Boats

Andy Micklewright and family in Awesome, and my brother-in-law and me in Cyanide, went up to Exmouth last weekend to watch the Bat Boat racing.
It was all very confusing. Nobody (not even the race marshalls) seemed to know the course details, still it was interesting to watch.
Photographs taken during the race feature small sprays of water on the horizon, so here are some shots taken when the excitement was all over.
I have no idea who was who, but I think the blue boat won.
