A day at the races


What strange fish are swimming inside Penzance Harbour...



maybe a trophy laden table and the sweatshirt are a clue...



as a dozen powerboats race round a buoyed course...



for a flurry of prizes, it seems everyone is a winner...



once the servicing has been carried out like re-fueling...



the boats are accurate models...



of the full size powerboats found on the international race circuit...



with a safety boat in attendance to deal with capsized boats...



as the boats speed round the course...



at over 60 mph...



meanwhile, a chance to get some up-to-date pictures of the Karina Olsen...



in the wet dock...



proudly showing off her heavily built bow...



designed to take the full force of seas pounding her stem when anchored in the shallow waters of the North Sea...




also in the dock is the netter Ajax, now waiting for her replacement to arrive form Scotland early next week when the two boats will come alongside and all the fishing gear taken off to their new home...



over in Newlyn the Algrie waits for ice...



two old timers soak up the afternoon sun...



and there's plenty of work yet to be done on one of the sardine ring nets stretched out on the quay...



two late season scallopers form Brixham have enjoyed a weekend in the port...



now it's time to scrub those decks...



with high-water in the afternoon on a spring tide plenty of anglers, young and old get to try their hand at depleting the fish stocks in the Bay...


even the gulls enjoy a free meal as the decks are washed down prior to entering the port.
