Just had our annual bathtub races today. These little boats are built around an actual bathtub and modified. They race rain or shine, and have been doing so for around fifty years. The pictures were taken from shore and are heavy crops, so I apologize for the quality, but gives you a good idea of the conditions they usually race in.

All these shots were hand held with a crazy wind and a huge crop, pretty happy with all things considered.
The pilots of these tiny vessels were over the moon to get these shot, as most of the people only saw what went on in a sheltered harbor, these were a witness to what went on in the biggest part of the 35 mile race.
The last pic in the series , the guy is still ripping, the wave is just hiding the tub.
Thanks for the comment.
