This painting depicts the Dragon class yacht Siena competing in one of the races in the 2017 Classic Yacht Association of Australia Cup Regatta, held at the RYCV. Siena is in a pursuit chase surfing the waves as she passes the yellow Tumlaren Dingo, and on the port side the Tumlaren Zephyr.

I had been invited by the skipper of Siena, to join the crew in this race, and it was a thrilling run as we chased the two Tumlarens, passing them shortly before we reached the next mark, and the beat back to the finish line.
