Images from the 2012 Classic Moth Boat Mid-Winter Regatta Part 2

The photos in today's offering are courtesy of Isle of Wight Len.  I'm still single finger typing so enjoy the pix!

First up is a nice off-wind bow shot featuring Greg Duncan in his Europe design Moth.  Note how Greg has lengthened the mast in order to get a bit more room to duck under the Europe's boom.

Jeff Linton's Mousetrap.  Jeff continued his dominance of recent regattas with yet another overall win.

John Zseleczky works hard to keep Y2K BUG flat on her lines as he drives to weather.

Mike Parsons seems pleased with life.  This bow shot of the Mistral design shows how little of the boat is actually in the water when correctly sailed flat. Great technique Mike!

Patrick!  Hike that boat flat!  Due to their narrow waterlines Mistrals are challenging boats to sail.

Part of the mark boat crew: two Amys, one Elisabeth.  IoW Len is also an important member, but someone has to hold the camera!

The view from the now empty launching beach.  Looks idyllic doesn't it?

    1. Yes, I gathered that from your latest post! I also love the beach and get a little antsy if I find myself more than a couple hours away.

  2. Oh, and please get rid of that annoying word verification option on comments. You really don't need it. Google's other spam filters will block 99% of all comment spam. You are just annoying your loyal readers by keeping those impossible eye tests.

    1. Tillerman: I tried to follow the instructions for Captcha deactivation as per the site which you cite in an earlier post. I can't find the box where one is allowed to deactivate word verification. I think I'm still using the old interface, but don't see the giant asterisk as directed here:

      Can you walk me through the process?

    2. When I'm logged in to my site, in the upper right hand corner I see displayed:
      my email address
      "New Post"
      I select Design
      Comments (and go down to the options which allow you to cancel word verification and trim comment moderation).

      Personally, I don't like the new interface. Not at all.

    3. Thanks Doc! I believe I've got it! I've deactivated CAPTCHA on both my blogs (or at least I think so--no doubt Tillerman will put a flea in my ear if the magic didn't work!)

      Oh, BTW, I think I know what Bagdog was talking about the other day--receiving duplicate (email) replies from Tillerman. That's also occurring for me as well, but the phenom is not just restricted to Tillerman. Is there a fix for that? Is there a fix for that?
