"Dogzilla"

Seems the RIB population of San Diego has doubled overnight
Thanks to the BMW Oracle trimaran (aka Dogzilla) bringing its own support fleet with it from San Francisco.
4 Zodiac Open pro boats and 2 larger chase boats (sorry dont know the maker on those )
So just waiting for the sea trials to begin , so I have some RIB's to play with

cheers Dal

Hey Dal,

I've been chuckling during your "initiation" over at Sailing Anarchy. Thanks for sticking with it over there, the Dogzilla shots will be getting better as you see that beast under sail. Some of the stuff that came out of Anacortes was phenomenal. Would you consider giving us some bigger, higher-res shots though?

Thanks!
Dan
aka RockHead on SA

BTW, some of my on the water stuff from the Paralympics is here.

Here are a couple of my favorites

1. My Wife's boat


2.


3. My wife's trinket


4. Her teammate & his bauble


RIB content!
5.

Hey Dan,
nice to know there are a few normal people on SA :
Sort of a tough bunch to please.
We take it for granted that generaly on the Ribnet forum,you dont get chewed up and spit out just for sport.
So taking a while to adjust to the sailing crowd
Must admit I dont get that "playful" feeling like when most of the ribnet guys mess with you.
It's as though the sail guys hate any outsider;especially driving a RIB.
That is of course until they want a camera boat capable of keeping up with Dogzilla !Now I have friends
Hope to get you some action shots .(If I can manouvre through the perimeter zodiacs )
Think I really need LimeyLindas boat for the intimidation factor
cheers Dal

Dal

I also enjoyed your initiation on SA but I think you got some good advice too!

Tough audience sometimes.

Jon,
yes, got some good advice and I knew when posting what the crowd was like
Needed some direction on "saily things" and certainly got it

Still think they are a differant breed though

cheers Dal

Don't know that I'm "normal", but it's a different culture over on SA. Amusing to watch, once you've been through it and are on the other side.

And you did get some good advice, I think. But look at some of the top sailing photogs, like Amory Ross, Tim Wilkes, etc. The bar is set really high, that's part of what drove your beating.

The medal in the hand is my favorite shot from China, needs a little post processing to remove some of the distracting elements, but I need to learn that. I'm an old film shooter, so composition in the viewfinder is more my bag. I could do it in a darkroom!

And thanks jyk!
More importantly, our soon to be 3 y.o.'s first post-cancer treatment MRI was clear, we learned today!

As they say Down Under, Good on you, mate!

Give the kid a hug for me. Many, many more happy birthday wishes.

Take care;
