Weekly Photo Challenge; On Top

I love watching these sailing hydrofoil boats flying along on top of the water!

Sailing HydrofoilThey have so little resistance they travel at incredible speeds, but they are so light (most of them are in the ‘moth class’ of dinghy’s) they are hard to control when the wind drops & their sailors often end up in the water.  I guess that’s why they usually wear wetsuits

I’d love to try one, but since I can hardly stand up on a paddle-board I doubt I could manage it!

Just about balancing on top of a paddleboard

    We get a lot of paddle boarders at our beach who go out to be with the dolphins every evening. I haven’t conjured up the courage yet myself. With my luck, I’d paddle up next to a Tiger shark.
