Another picture of the Sint Maarten Regatta. This two ships participated in the Spinnaker 1 class. I take this picture a couple of minutes after the start. We can't go any closer and decides to take this shot. I think the boats are a little bit unsharp. But i like this shot because the same tilled of the boats. I hope you like it.

Great shot, again, this is an amazing collection of photos, Robbert. The sharp tilt gives a dimention of drama, and I like very much the row of sails at the horizon. Very well captured. A very good job, Robbert.

Very nice shot, great composition, amazing sky and interetsing impression of movement. I like the blue colour tones and triangles of sails on horizon. Well framed. Bravo, Robbert...

Même si les bateaux sont un peu petits, ce n'est pas grave Robbert, le vent souffle fort. Ce qui est amusant et intéressant dans cette composition ce sont les plaisanciers placés du même côté pour faire contrepoids.
Even if the boats are a little small, it is not serious Robbert, the wind blows extremely. What is amusing and interesting in this composition they are the yachtmen placed on the same side to make counterweight. Very well.

Het is mooi de twee zeilboten zowel links als rechts met de bemaning in een rust stand, en de hellingshoek bijna gelijk, en in de midden de kleinere zeilers in de verte, mooi gedaan Robbert. Verder doen op deze manier.

Lucky you to be able to see to all those places.. Nice shot Robbert. Don't worry, i believe we all like it. I also like the horizon line with all the small boats.. Very nice.

This is a very good composition. The off-centered boats and the rows of boat at the back creates an unexplainable dynamic. The red of the boat provides a contrast to the blueness of everythung else. And yes, I also see the man in red.

Nice action shot! I like how you framed it.
I also like to see the small sails far away on the horizontal line. Great captured!

Very nice picture Robbert. Those sailboat on background add deep to this picture. Lucky to be there to take this picture.

Robbert, je weet het al,
Ik hoef niets te zeggen, dus doe ik dat ook niet, wonderful job.

What beautiful boats, so elegant. Your sailing shots are always so refreshing to see. I've been there myself, sitting on the side in the sunshine; great fun. great shot.

Wonderful composition Robbert. The leaning masts convey the wind's visible power as these two boats slice through the choppy waters.Well done.

And again it's one of your "inclined" boating action shots, Robbert. I like how we can see the two boats in front with the crews sitting on the side, and in the back there seems to be an almost indefinite repetition of sailing boats. Great fresh colors, another good seaside scene.

J'aime beaucoup le cadrage et cet angle identique qu'on ces deux voiliers.
Bon boulot selon moi.

It is a fine sailing picture Robbert. The color of the sea is very deep and the repetition of the tilted boats makes a fine composition too.

Another grear boat shot Robbert. I also like the angles of the boats in your photo. It seems that it was a very windy day. Your sky is beautifull and i really enjoy all the small sail boat on the horizon. Nicely done.

Dear Robbert, good detail on the water, a little bit grainy, great composition. Very good angle. Well done :)
