I saw this yacht coming up the river as I paused to take a picture of the Abbey. Was it going to come up this far, it could easily turn round and return? Would it pass ‘advantageously’? I decided to wait and see.
My camera was a Rolleiflex SL66 with the standard fixed 80mm lens with colour slide film (hence the edging), so it wasn’t a question of banging off a number of frames. Wait. Wait. Wait. Kerlunk as I fired the shutter.
Unfortunately, the sail hadn’t quite filled from his tack/gybe, however, I was pretty pleased with the result.
