Moving the OC6
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
800 x 500
Sometimes before the Vagabonds can be put in the water the OC6 needs to be moved out of the way. There is a cradle made for the purpose luckily. All hands available help as they are very heavy.
This is the seventh in a series of eight landscapes dealing with sailing at Tingira Boat Club, on Macleay Island. The days, which have three races, are for those people learning to sail. More experienced mentors, from the club, help the beginners. I wanted to include as many figures as I could as these mornings are all about the people, boats and having fun. You can see the big island, Australia, in the distance. Coochiemudlo Island also features.
