Here's a suggestion: the "default" photo of trees that Flickr have given as the background of the "banner" on the group frontpage doesn't reflect the purpose of the group.

Perhaps Norman could nominate a photo each month, perhaps from the group's archives, or we could each vote for one each month.

As a starter, I vote for RPCharteris's IMGP5872, suitably cropped - which I believe the group moderator (Norman) can do.....

Discuss!

That's a brilliant idea... assuming it can be done.

The photo suggested is good, but might, I fear, cause a little confusion in that there are three yachts there, but only one is an Achilles - and that's the furthest away.

At least to start off with, there should only be Achilles in the picture, preferably A24 (like "Mumbles weekend 020" by Snoopy463) then later we can work in the other models.

Good idea Rod or was it Di. I have altered the photo to the one of 3 Achilles 24 at Mumbles 75th in June. Hope you are ok with it. I am a bit biased since my current boat and last boat are featured. Anyone have a better one let me know.

Perfect, thanks Norman!

Next challenge is to take photos that will suit the format. We'll see what we can do.....

Yes Rod the format is a bit of a challenge square and panoramic at the same time - good luck.

Tried to use your photos Ron but after much effort I can only get the top half of the photo to come out. This is after using the so called positioning capability of the insertion system. So have gone back to the one of my boats. Sorry! If anyone can help please do.
