Powerboats

PowerboatsWhile I was happily painting away, suddenly the river came alive with powerboats of all sizes streaming down, heading out to sea.

This is definitely one of those times when a camera cannot do a scene justice.

The noise and spectacle of what must have been forty odd boats cruising by was quite something, weather you like powerboats or not.

One thing that surprised me somewhat, was that they were all more or less at the speed limit. Usually one boat goes a little faster, then another, then the one that's being overtaken speeds up and suddenly it's an all out race!

  1. Maybe it was a club members funeral or perhaps an orderly club outing where nobody would dream of passing the commodores vessel? :o))
