The "Thunder on Cocoa Beach" Super Boat races were held today, 8/22/10 and as promised, there was a lot of noise and speed. They started racing at 11:00 am but for some reason, they cut the 1:00 pm main event from the scheduled 1 1/2 hours to half an hour. By the time I got my chair and umbrella set up, I only had time for some long distance shots and the race was over. I was going to stabilize my camera and go for some telephotos but it was too late. Click Here to see my previous post that shows what the boats look like close up.
All sizes of spectator boats were anchored just outside the buoy line to watch.
The boats raced only 150 yards from the beach and surfers swam out pretty close to get a good view.
People packed the beach to watch the free show.
Life is just better in Florida!
Have some Fun in the Sun!
