Before the race

The Hartley TS16 Class boats certainly don't look that elegant without their sails but once they unruffle those sails they are tranformed. Getting them into the water is quite a task and I had the pleasure to watch many of them taking to the water recently at Largs. This is the first in a series of study paintings.
