Having been born and raised in Weymouth, Carole and I decided to visit our old hometown today in order to soak up some of the Olympic atmosphere. Weymouth and Portland are hosting the many sailing races that are part of London 2012 and it was great to be able to get some shots of one of those races. The 80-400 came in really useful and the bright sunny day meant that I could do without a tripod and shoot handheld.
It was a brilliant day and it was good to see the town so full of people. The seafront has enjoyed something of a face-lift and we had no trouble at all getting in and out of the town. All-in-all, an exceptional day out!
