Although Southampton Water and the Solent are magnets for all types of water sports enthusiasts, this was the first and only time that I have ever seen such an event on the waters close to Southampton. With the use of a telephoto lens and the image being heavily cropped in order to increase the size of the subject, it would appear that the skier and towing vessel were extremely close together although I would estimate the tow rope was about 50-60 feet, (15-18 metres) long. So the camera can lie! The actual location was south of the Hythe Pier.
