These Photos were taken by Will at http://www.oceanphotography.co.nz/
The next three photos were taken during the start of the 2005 Coastal Clasic Yacht race from Aucklands Waitamata Harbour to Russell in the Bay of Islands.
The conditions were good with a stiff SW to W breeze all the way
I was happy enough with an average speed of 8.2 Knots over the
112 Nautical Mile race.
The race is very popular with over 230 yachts racing up the coast each year in October over Labour weekend holidays.
