I could not make up my mind whether to book one of the vessels reviewing the fleet including Wight Scene, or take the conventional ferry that cost me £9.30 for a senior day return catching all the ships up, but not so close as you got but still getting a good view. Superb sight, never to be seen again.
Thanks for the favourable comments. As David will confirm it was an awful day and it was very difficult to keep my cameras and lenses free of water! I was pleased that most of my pictures turned out well.
I booked my ticket on the Wight Scene last year in order to witness the event. I'm sorry none of the ships are British registered but I love to photograph ships whatever the nationality.
Best regards to all
