It has been more than twenty years since I first visited Venice as deck hand on the yacht Joss. We stopped at the end of a month long charter on the then Yugoslav coast. The boat was in Venice for two weeks. I would take every opportunity to go exploring and took many photos. Though in those days I was shooting film and not earning much so I was quite economical with my film. I have regretted that and so have vowed to use any spare time during the America's Cup World Series Regatta to get out and make up for those lost shots.
