Last year, whilst at Falmouth, Anne Belcher was invited to join the RCYC official photographer on the RIB to take photos of the classic boats which were assembled there for a regatta. Anne sent a disc of her pictures in case they could use them but it was indicated by the official photographer that it wasn’t really necessary.
This year Anne was asked to speak to one of the high-ups in the club and he thanked her for the photos and told her they had used them for advertising this year’s event and that they were sorry that her name only appeared on one poster and not on the other nor the programme book.
Anne's photos also appeared inside the book on a double page spread and a single whole page and only one small one on another page from the official photographer.
