Thank you so much everyone (Rob, Cathy, Carolina, Dorothy, Wally, Colleen, and Joy) for the great comments. All of these sunset photograpphs were taken on the same evening when we had a terrific sunset and the race course set up so they had to come back to us on the committee boat, from out of the sun. Another case of "trpatrt, eh…" - Allan

{"trpatrt" = 'the right place @ the right time,eh…'} #604635
