Western Australian Speed Boat Club - State Title Finals

May 20, 2019

It was the WASBC State Title Finals and everyone was psyched for the runs.

15BHP boats all the way up to Unlimited (somewhere in the 800+BHP)

 

So for a challenge I tried Panning shots as I was told it's hard to nail.

They were not wrong, I now respect the bejeezus out of Fast Panning shots, it's hard as heck.

Since it was the final's you will find a lot more shots then normal.

 

But got to say it was a perfect day , nice calm waters and 18-22c and a gentle warm sun.

A huge thumbs up from us over on the bank with our cameras as it was a good time to catch up with my mates Grant and Peter.

We had a good old chinwag and snapped the bejeezus out the boats as they zipped past.

The water was a perfect blue, until after lunch when it became overcast and the water went grey on us, but we all got some nice photos.

 

So without further ado, here are my 5 Star images.

If I can get over the sun burn, I will look at my 4 stars and work on them and expand the blog or make a part2.

 

Really can't wait until the next season, really want to nail those pans.

 

 

I really need to get use to being around people, as I really wanted to get more Engine Bay photos (next Race Season goal) , but was trying not to get in anyone's way.

 

Harv's Engine Bay

 

 Maddog's Engine bay. 

 

A lot of the teams are Family run and its nice to get some snaps in between race.

  

 

 

 

 

They had what was like an older Ski Boat acting as the "Drop & GO" for these beast.

 When they do take off, they can really get out of the water.

 

 

  

 

Maddog, had a issue, but thankfully he got it sorted for the rest of the races.

 

All-Torq was kind enough to do a wee power sweep near our spot, so we got some nice close up snaps.

  

Often the boats where up on their hunches with nothing but air underneath. It was glorious.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was panning for Harv's as he was ripping, then Maddog does a "Meep-Meep" into the frame.

Stupid fast.....love it.

 

 

Love this one, Bird racing a Tunnel Boat. Made me smile.
