Pro Boats Photos of MY Boat ! :)

While lazing around Antigua I had some friends come over from Australia so we slipped into Antigua Sailing Week to give those 100 foot race boats a bit of a scare

Coming up to one mark an eastwhile crew yells: "Look out for that dinghy in front of us!" "STUFF HIM WE'RE RACING" Capt Bligh screams!

Anyways, it was Jason Pickering a professional photographer covering the race week with his happy snap camera.
A couple of the pics are on my website (we bought some )...
But also theres a few more on his website.

I kinda thought if you'se was really bored....

Jason Pickerings Website: Sea Life

Its so nice to have some good looking photos of the boat when she is going flat out

And in a couple of pics you can see theres other boats behind us!!

Gee Mark. Looks like you finally shelled out a couple of bucks (that'a quid to foreign types) for some decent sails.

Nice pictures m8.

I see you unchained the filly from the mast and gave her run about the boat while under way.

Two things Mark,...
Last one is my favourite, and most importantly... no nekked wimmen?

BTW I enjoyed your videos of tha Atlantic crossing! Thank you for posting them. I plan on purchasing a boat in Croatia for our family early 2013 (post retirement) and am soaking up all the 'been there, done that" stuff I can get my mouse clicks on. Thank you, and fair winds.

Mark, no longer a viking, just a horned devil

I was expecting the unchained filly to be serving cocktails in the barest of bikinis or at least be sitting on the aft cockpit boarding rail. You must be getting old......hehehe
