Weymouth Gig Regatta

The Weymouth Gig Regatta on Saturday was, I was told, the last event before the whole place is virtually shut down for the Olympics. It is a fabulous location, with a huge sheltered bay, the largest artificial harbour in the world (probably) and a great lump of rock called the Nothe in the middle to watch it all from.
Not having a Cornish pilot gig we couldn't take part in the Saturday racing but it was spectacular. I got to ride in one of the umpires' boats - here are a few pics.

I can't agree with your definition of "a few", but thanks anyway for posting these!
