D&I booked a spot at the Old Quarantine Station (Q-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!
…and more people…
… and more boats!
Getting ready for the start…. a real start line was forming and the spectator craft in the foreground was building up!
A bit crazy trying to draw as the leading boat sails past… I then proceeded to overwork the colouring! Sigh!
I had tears in my eyes…it was so special!
What a wonderful day!
