Okay so first of all a very warm Christmas greeting to all! Second of all, this blog post was very hard work, comprising visits to the Careenage in Bridgetown both this morning and just before sunset this evening. Add to the mix the fact that there have been only a few posts from me in as many months...I'm out of practise! Still the Christmas light was merciful and the struggles with post-processing and organising these images to make them all of a piece was difficult. Lots of confusion and mental cobwebs to say the least! This post is for anyone with a love of the sea and sailing. This is just a peek at a few of the beautiful classic yachts that just crossed the Atlantic in this year's Panerai Transat Classique and a few images of Historic Bridgetown. There are few words that adequately describe these works of art, ocean-going vessels, many over 100 years old. The winner in this particular race (the regatta appears to comprise a number of races throughout the year) was "White Dolphin" which features prominently in these images. Over 40 of these yachts made the crossing and I hope to get some more images of them in the days to come, though not at such close distances: The majority are moored in Carlisle Bay, just south of the careenage. All the best!
