I was going to say I'd have put Dobson and Pinky into the list pretty near the top. Go Dobbo!

I guess there was virtually no wind, strong tide and a lot of the fleet in race 6 got timed out. Didn't seem to make a massive change to the podium apart from dropping dobson and elevating graham/zoe..

good work by olly porter/ben harden (ex opti sailor) getting a 3rd in the last race!

some really great images in that lot. Surely there wasn't a Helicopter at the event thought?! Did they run the event in front of the Corinthian then?

From the photographs Yes it must of had a few shots taken by helicopter, there are no bridges that high nearby

And No the sailing would of been out in the mouth of the river. The sailing in from of the clubhouse would be close nit as there isn't a lot of water to sail in.

Thanks radixon, I've sailed in the Endeavour so am aware that the course is quite a way from the club so I was interested to see if the Royal had decided to make it more viewer friendly. That's quite an expense if they did go for a Helo. Maybe a camera kite?
