Just off the coast of Portsmouth, England, we can a group of sailing vessels engaged in some competitive harbour or buoy racing.
On the beach we can see the Seafarers Sailing Club, and according to Google Earth the image that captured the race was taken on April 21st 2007 – which would mean that we’re seeing the 3rd race in the Seafarers Sailing Club Spring Series, which was won by sail number 1178 with K. Stares at the helm!
Given that Portsmouth has such a long naval history1 is hardly surprising that there’s about a hundred zillion different kinds of boats to see in the area, so why not go for a virtual wander and see what interesting boats you can find?
