    This was the last "Beer Can" race of the summer held by the Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, Orange County, California.

    That is pretty cool although it looks like mass confusion. I guess the beer cans explain that! Nice work.

    Thanks :)

    :lol: I know what you mean.

    It does look that way when they are all circling around before the race actually starts.

    They are just going around or behind the "committee" boat that runs the race. Then they zig zag all the way down the harbor and back.

    There's a good shot with the sun in the background of the sailboats leaned over in both directions going in to the harbor.
