You know when you anchor up after a day of sailing and you've finished dinner and relaxing with a drink, and you realise you're feeling too lazy to clean up? Anchored up off Double Island Point, push home in the morning.
Detrius of a day on the water...I'll clean up in the morning

This is a test to see if I can upload images OK as I'm having problems on other forums. Please excuse me if I waste your time.
Shot was taken on Werribee River, Vic about 3 weeks ago.

Yes it is a FARR 7500, the other boat is a 22 ft wooden boat that my friend built himself from a UK design, will ask him about the designer . Great Boat and gets a lot of attention when its out and about, He also beat us to and from Werribee but that may have been sailing skills .. but then at least I get a comfy bed.

Double Island Point an sunrise yesterday. The Moreton Bay mud footprints are courtesy of cleaning a dirty anchor well, grrr, I should run a hose up to the anchor well for this exact reason. .


I've been wanting to try and do a panoramic shot with an Iphone after seeing on Seabreeze some cool photos with it. The NW wind made anchoring up behind the Point really rolly, and warning! An IPhone needs to be apparently stable to the earth to make it look good. I was panning slowly to the right and the little line looked like a crazy drunk I was rolling so much, it was absolutely impossible to hold the phone straight enough.
This photography stuff I really enjoy, but I'm not naturally good at it. I need to get a good boat camera.
Not my best picasso moment, need one of those gymbal thingys next.

Sailed around the Broardwater and up to jumpinpin and back today.
8/12 kts. 23c . Lovely.
Practiced reefing and identified a couple of issues like , couldn't get main right up after shaking out reef due to reef line jamming near mast. Need a small block on boom .

Noticed yacht beached just to south of jumpinpin . Looks very recent and she seems in very good condition. Dont know how long the (looks near new from colour of canvas) furling headsail ,main etc will last

Hi BB,
Thx mate, You certainly live in a pretty part of the world. Is the reef line jamming where it turns 90 degree at the boom?
And did you see what yacht is it in the pic that ran aground ? Looks like a decent size, and a good looking boat to boot?

Hi Shaggy,
yep, I'll replace saddle with cheek block.
Thats all I could get of beached boat without dropping sails and going closer.

The poor sod, that would be horrible seeing your boat like that. Love the green in the foreground, telling pic.

Nice one Shaggy, nice to see some on the water pics, especially while I'm still land bound. Yep gymble might work well, let us know how that goes if you get one, on the water photography can be a challenge. Faster shutter speeds can make the difference when you're moving around so much, so a camera with manual controls will give you some ability, but if the light isn't bright, you have to bump up the gain (iso) on the sensor to achieve a faster shutter speed. Unless it's a higher end camera, the risk then is that it'll introduce noise and the pics are crap. If you're into a more manual operation dslr or mirrorless camera then well and good, otherwise a gymble is sounding like a better, simpler option.
