mariquita and tuiga westward cup 2010 1920px


(Recently sold to a private collector).

The most memorable thing about this moment was the noise.  Wind howling, bow waves, wash and the clattering of rigging - almost deafening!

Here we see Tuiga rounding the Solent Bank mark ahead of Mariquita to begin the run home during Friday's race of the 2010 Westward Cup.
