Nice shots

They have two different styles of boats racing at the same time? Why is that?

It's club racing. They race handicapped so all boats leave at different times, then race either 5 or 10 laps. Theoretically, they all cross the line at the same time. It does get close at times.

Malla, I need your details for the club, they still want you to do the PR thing if you're interested. I'll PM you tomorrow.

Excellent photos as usual!

Carl.

a bit to bright for my liking as the sun was in the wrong place.

But the back/sidelit water looks great! I love #4!

In the States you obviously call boats by different names, to us a Hydro is either a ly-down or a "kneeler", Run abouts are our "V" Boats.

Barrow (and most other clubs) in the UK run handicap racing where all boats are timed, then set off at different times to complete 5 or 10 laps, where hopefully, they all cross the line around the same time.

If you're ever in the UK, let me know and I'll get you on a Rescue boat either at Barrow or Lancashire.

Look forward to seeing your shots!
