Louis Vuitton Cup Nice 2009
I never managed to get onto a small RIB to get close to the action, but I did get on board the ferry boat the city of Nice made available to the public.
The lenses I had did not help much, the IS 28-135mm did not quite have the range and the bottom of the Canon range 70-300mm did not have image stabilisation. Here are some of the better shots.
