1980 ish - A great sequence off Port Melbourne YC.

Back when we sailed it was very, very rare to have photos of you sailing except at maybe the Aussie Titles.
Below are 3 photos taken at Port Melbourne YC, probably at an Invitation race. During this race, we were about mid field and as we approached the finish line, we spotted a photographer on the finish boat, so I sailed towards them, hoping that they may take our photo. Consequently, we got some great sequence shots. I was very happy with the 3 photos below. As I said before it was very rare.

Notice how JH and I are looking at the photographer, while DC was 'concentrating on keeping the boat flat'. Sure DC, you didn't have your glasses on, so you probably didn't see the photographer.
