The first time we have ever been to see the start of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. D&I booked a spot at the Old Quarantine Station at the North Head of the harbour. Only 300 people there and they let us sit on the verandah – so had a great view in the comfort of dense shade and lovely cool breeze. Sketching this was the only time I was in the sun!
A bit crazy trying to draw as the leading boat sails past… I then proceeded to overwork the colouring! Sigh!
Last sketch for the day – the second boat, Scandia going through the heads. I then sat and just watched the boats – it was just SO amazing – I had tears in my eyes…it was so special! What a wonderful day!
