Round the Island Yacht Race ... a few of the 1600 boats entered most of whom did not finish due to lack of wind. Taken from the chalk cliffs Freshwater. Helicopter is probably Beken the official photographer

By the look of the colours Mary the weather was good albeit if not for sailing.

I assume Freshwater is on the Isle of White? We have relations who live  in Lymington, and when we have visited them we have crossed on the ferry to the Island, and walked to Freshwater many times.

Nice shots and thanks for posting

Nice viewpoint. Who needs a helicopter to take photos?

It makes a change from a few years ago when yachts were capsizing due to the strong winds.
