This is the 5th one of my series 'The Race Is On'. This series shows images taken at the annual 'Van Loon Sailing Event' on the Lake of Veere, Zeeland, The Netherlands, the last time held on July, 2017.

To know more about this event, please check-out the narrative of THIS ONE.

Edit: The HD-82 is a reconstructed ancient Dutch wooden fishing boat (built in 1894) used on the former Zuiderzee, now IJsselmeer.

My adopted dad loved tugboats, for some reason I was never able to discern, and I know he would have enjoyed that low-slung black one back there. Unfortunately I cannot show it to him since he died three years ago, but we had lost him about eight years before that to Alzheimer�s. So I keep his appreciation of tugs alive in my mind, even having a model of a tug in my studio downstairs, waiting for the day when my son finds his own place and my studio stops being used as a temporary storage room. Do you have a closer shot of this or any other tug? When I do finish that tug model, it would be fun to base its paint job on an actual Dutch craft.

Happy Trails

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

That yacht with its colourful sails looks beautiful and so does the old tugboat. A well composed shot with fine details Cornelius.

The sailboat looks well cared for SEA. Great action shot and the tug boat does add interest. Once a man of the sea, always a man of the sea.

No matter the outcome, I am definitely rooting for this one in the race...a beautiful wooden boat and as always, a very nicely composed image.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
