I had great fun over the weekend photographing the 1st Copa de Andalucía de Catamaranes (Andalucía Cup for Catamarans) hosted by the sailing club in Torre del Mar.
The sun was shining and the sky blue, with just a breath of wind.
What a perfect place to while away a few hours taking photos, and sitting in the outdoor bar of the club-house watching the proceedings, chatting with friends, sipping chilled wine and eating delicious tapas 🙂
Picture perfect scenes Marianne! And so many gorgeous shades of blue!
It was a perfect photo opportunity 🙂
Living the life….:-)

Beautiful photos, and a lovely way to spend a day. I love the idea of sailing but not the actuality but it is great to watch, especially the rainbow coloured sails, which I’ve haven’t seen to the same extent here 🙂
When we were in Sydney, 18 months ago, I remember photographing the colourful sails during the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht on Boxing Day. Now, looking back through the photos I can see that although there were a few individually coloured ones in blue, red or yellow – there weren’t many rainbow ones. Maybe these are the colours of the catamarans! Who knows 🙂
Absolutely fantastic pics, Marianne!
Thanks for saying so, Dianne – much appreciated 🙂
Wow! Really lovely photos! I can’t wait to discover Andalucia..
You’ll have such fun! 🙂
It does look pretty idyllic, Marianne – and blue – wow 🙂
Great weekend, Meredith 🙂
Our local beach – looks like a fun day!
Perfect for sailing, Tanya 🙂
Could it get any more blue? awesome 🙂
Doesn’t look like much wind for them though! But a perfect day in every other respect…. 🙂
There seemed to be very little wind at first, but after an hour or two the bigger boats got out their spinnaker sails and scooted along a bit faster. Still – not as fast as I would have thought!
Loved all the colourful sails though, Wendy 🙂
Yes, it looks amazing, great photos as always, Marianne
Thanks, Wendy 🙂
What a lovely day!
It was indeed – though if I’m honest, I have no idea who won!!
Does it really matter?
Beautiful pictures Marianne. I’m glad you were able to enjoy such a civilised social event while taking them. Hic

It turned out to be much more civilised than I had imagined it would be, David. We took along a picnic, sun chairs and an umbrella – but ended up leaving them in the car 🙂
Too beautiful! What a gorgeous blue sky!
It was the perfect backdrop for the colourful sails, Amy 🙂
Thanks for your comment – always very much appreciated.
