Zapcats in South Shields

High speed thrills in South Shields

Click the picture to enlarge.

We’ve had a bit of an overcast sky in South Shields today, so I’ve delved into the archives to bring out this picture more redolent of clear blue skies and salty air. Two years ago the ZapCat Championship came to Sandhaven Beach in South Shields and thousands of people enjoyed two days of high speed thrills and spills on the sea as these powerful craft raced against each other as part of their national championship.

Camera details; Konica Minolta Dimage Z3, 350mm lens, 1/250 second, f5.6
