    Nice composition there Richard,

    Looking at the other shots on smugmug; it seems you had picked a good vantage point.

    Tip for smugmug viewers:
    1) click the first image so it comes up on its own,
    2) then use the right arrow (on keyboard) to step through them.

    The thing I'd like to know is "how on earth do they get the driver into the boat with such a massive air intake over the canopy"?

    I'd like to think they build the boat around them and they had to live in there for their whole career but sadly I fear it's not the case.

    I agree the angle looking through the images is good and you got a lot of their wake in there which conveys a lot of the speed I think.
