John, Peter and myself got together for a run at Yarralumla this morning.
It was a cold and foggy morning, but we had perfect sailing conditions. John sailed HMAS PARRAMATTA, tugs SUDBURY and EMPIRE PEGGY and HMS AMETHYST. Peter bought along his Flower class corvette HMCS AGASSIZ.
I had FRUNZE out for her second run since completion. She looked distinctly out of place with the steam tugs and WW2 ships, but this is the great thing about Task Force 72. It's always a unique opportunity to see ships of various types, navies and eras built to a common scale sailing together.
Here are some photos. I apologise for the Kirov being in every one of these shots, but I'm simply not skilled enough to be able to take photos of multiple models underway whilst trying to sail my own ship at the same time.
John and Peter - please feel free to add your shots below.
