Stuck in Cowes - trapped there by by gale force winds - we were supposed to be delivering Cracker to the Thames for the annual Medway Regatta - we did at least enjoy watching the Royal Yacht Squadron's cannons starting the final very competitive Commodore's Cup race.

Interestingly with a fairly slow CCD on my phone I had to press the shutter a full 2 seconds before the gun to actually catch the smoke! Mind you the line is so long it takes 7 seconds before you hear the Bang at the outer end. Luckily, as you see, there is enough smoke to see when the start actually is - light travelling a LOT faster than sound.
