Racing in the estuary

I did the painting above last week. It is a warm painting of an ever popular subject. It is challenging to find different ways to paint the same subject. If I didn't I wouldn't enjoy painting it.
Years ago we used to do dinghy races which would sometimes involve treasure hunts in the estuary. We would have to pull the dinghy up onto Llansteffan or Ferryside beach and run to retrieve some object. We would often sail with our children and our dog who would be quite happy watching the waves breaking around him even if we got a bit nervous when the boat went on its beams ends. I think all that would all be a bit hectic for me now
