It’s nice to start what promises to be a good Sunday with some beauty. I took these two seascapes from the Fremantle South Mole yesterday around midday. The ocean was mirror flat.

THIS IS FREMANTLE-in winter

bathers bay

 

THIS IS FREMANTLE-in winter! I took this photo at Bathers Bay this morning while chatting to fellow shooter Peter Zuvela of J Shed.

More fine weather ahead this weekend and next week so perfect for school holidays and for supporting our local Freo traders.

LIONESS BACK IN FREMANTLE PORT

 

Leeuwin

 

Nice to see the training ship STS Leeuwin II back at berth at B Shed in Fremantle Port after she was up north at Geraldton for a few months.

Welcome back home!

FREMANTLE SAILING CLUB RENT TWENTY TIMES INCREASE

 

The members of the Fremantle Sailing Club have got a huge challenge on their hands. The historic club has received notice from the Department of Transport that the rent they have to pay would increase from $ 34,700 last year to a whopping $ 760,000 this year.

An increase that is twenty times more than the previous rent sounds pretty outrageous to me and the Sailing Club is not happy about it either, so they are going to arbitration and will try to renegotiate the rent.

Good luck!

SHAPES OF FREMANTLE

Fremantle shapes

 

I liked the shapes when I noticed the sailing boats at Bathers Bay with the umbrellas of the Bathers Beach House in the foreground.

A bit of colour to start a beautiful Freo weekend.

DRAGONS WORLD SAILING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, sailing, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on January 4, 2019

 

The 2019 Dragons World Sailing Championships started off the coast of Fremantle this morning and will continue until January 9.

Ten races will be held over the six days with some starting as early as 9.30 a.m, depending on the wind conditions, which were strong this morning.

The race course is similar to the one during the 1987 America’s Cup.

A fleet of 35 dragons will compete, which includes  15 international teams.

The event was a bit too far off the coast this morning for me to take photos, so I hope they’ll come a bit closer to the South Mole soon.

It is pretty spectacular to see all those young people high up on the mast of the STS Leeuwin II sailing ship in Fremantle port.

I took the photos on Monday afternoon when they were securing the sails after a trip out on the Indian Ocean.

A BIG FREMANTLE SUNDAY. ENJOY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, concert, food, markets, music, Uncategorized by freoview on November 4, 2018

 

 

There is a lot on this Sunday, so take advantage of the good weather and connect with our Freo community.

There is a big Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road from 8-12 with additional art&craft and other stalls to the usual fresh and organic produce, breads, pastries, coffee, breakfast, etc. There is of course live music, face painting and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm.

From 10-12 the Repair Cafe is on again at Stackwood, corner Stack and Wood streets in White Gum Valley, so if you’ve got anything that needs repair that is the place to go to.

 

Harbour Classic

From 1pm the Harbour Classic will be sailed in Fremantle Port, so that should be a great spectacle to enjoy.

 

Felicity Groom

And last but not least, pop powerhouse Felicity Groom and her three-piece band will be performing at the free music courtyard session in the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 pm.
