Book 'em Danno!


... "Murder One." I'm sure that's how Jack Lord's famous line went.

Like we saw in the preceding pieces No Idea, Still No Idea, The Deer Hunter and Taxi Driver, there was some racing and other great things going on just before Easter. This begins day two, the Sunday. All pics © Steb Fisher.

Not the big waves like those "tremendous" opening credits.

I can still hear the theme music. Bet you will all day too. Now... It's OK - You can thank me later. If you're too young or need another fix, you can. Right HERE, actually.

AC10Sun-0012

Couldn't walk past the colours... If there's a ripple, there has to wind. Somewhere.

AC10Sun-1311

Nnnnnnnneeeeeeeooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww

B26AC10Sun-0025

Drinking shirt day, but I think these guys HERE from Panache, win that one... (See the end)

B63AC10Sun-0090

The other members from the flight of B45s.

B63AC10Sun-0699

This is Schuss.

B67AC10Sun-0565

Maybe it's just the parallax angle of the lens...

B67AC10Sun-0918

Bow wave, CBD - nice.

B120AC10Sun-0482

Phil and his Cappers.

B120AC10Sun-1505

Back HERE, we did not have a shot of Caro's face. We do now!

B220AC10Sun-0297

Vang?

B331AC10Sun-0027

This team are the current HCOTW holders and have been after the Love Boat title as well... They are kind enough to send us lots of pics and info too. They'll be out for MWS and M2G. They'll have to be if they want to keep their latest trophy.

B331AC10Sun-0282

No. It's here. Go now, now, now! BTW - BOOM STICKER!!!

B331AC10Sun-1179

Addiction in behind them.

B331AC10Sun-1426

Nice. Some sun would cap it off, but nice...

B347AC10Sun-0840

We're with Rogue Trader and we got this information in from Jeremy Walton: -

As always, great articles going up. In the latest one (Bookem Danno) there are some shots of Rogue Trader; just thought I would add some names for you:-
In the first photo Greg Rayner, the owner on the Helm, Murray Erwin on the Kite. Steve Lefevre on the main and his faceless wife Louise in the office. "Ring In" next to Greg is Chris Lewin, the owner of the Sydney 38 Another Challenge. 2nd photo is Murray flying, Lachie Rayner (Greg's Son) in blue providing the second smile and me in black, centre of frame.
Keep up the good work I really enjoy reading your stuff.

Thank you very much, indeed...

B347AC10Sun-1577

Boom Sticker and two smiles. Well done.

This is our new FDU poster shot. It takes over from Stephen Jamboy Hill's previous effort that lasted 12 months, which shows how strong that image was.  To me, this new one has got "Now listen. This bit up here is mine and yours is down the back. Get it!" written all over it.

B353AC10Sun-IV182

Then they changed ends anyway... Hhmmmmm. Pourquoi?

B9797AC10Sun-0251

That Band-aid again...

B9797AC10Sun-1100

FleetAC10Sun-0004

That's quiet.

FleetAC10Sun-1292

Bit more in this. L to R is Godzilla, Top Gun, Salamander III and the Runner out back.

FleetAC10Sun-1293

Look out. Coming through. Keeping it nice, they went to leeward, as well.

FleetAC10Sun-1294

FleetAC10Sun-1295

These frames are one second apart, BTW

FleetAC10Sun-1296

Love a good sequence, as you know.

FleetAC10Sun-1297

See ya.

FleetAC10Sun-1320

People will do anything to come out and watch yacht racing. Not.

H295AC10Sun-0473

Are you in this Simon Dickins?

H620AC10Sun-0779

More Steb.

H1010AC10Sun-0658

Ikon barrelling in to the hitch mark.

H1010AC10Sun-1135

The windward drop.

R21AC10Sun-0334

R21AC10Sun-0715

R25AC10Sun-0454

David and the Surprise gang.

R25AC10Sun-0457

If you had a dart in your mouth, you'd take on Tim 'Old School' Dutton!

R25AC10Sun-1347

Doesn't smoke though - I think. Must ask.

R25AC10Sun-1348

R25AC10Sun-1535

Stay up! Please.

R25AC10Sun-IV253

A true Steb.

R33AC10Sun-0648

Oh well. At least it is going up, so it can dry there...

R33AC10Sun-IV089

R55AC10Sun-0022

Knows something. Do you know what it is GAK?

R55AC10Sun-0153

Go the hike! Interesting time to take a call when you're Bow2...

R55AC10Sun-0155

Got rid of it quickly.

R55AC10Sun-1254

Charge! GAK's hair again..

R111AC10Sun-0131

The original HCOTW holders... The Zilla.

R111AC10Sun-0426

I wonder if they know?????

R111AC10Sun-0431

Absolutely an honourable mention in the hero pic awards, if for the Boom Sticker alone, as opposed to the bow wave and facial expression.

R111AC10Sun-1502

Hello!

R141AC10Sun-0916

He loves it. Really... The girls said so.

R205AC10Sun-0343

Another true Steb.

R205AC10Sun-0361

Big bag, little boat, Hick built. Wake is this one. The Colin Chapman theory in practice on the water.

R336AC10Sun-0288

Some of the faces aboard Swordfish Trombone.

R363AC10Sun-0405

HERE. Harold Faltermeyer music, Kenny Loggins Lyrics. "Hit the brakes..."

R968AC10Sun-1396

The late Heath Ledger made "Why so serious?" cross over in to common parlance.

R968AC10Sun-IV046

Maybe this is why??? Doh!

R1121AC10Sun-0261

No more superlatives, just well done.

R1121AC10Sun-0307

R1121AC10Sun-1234

S47AC10Sun-0790

S55AC10Sun-0920

On the way. (Rhetorical question)
