The 2nd best place would be at the finish line. Too bad I'am always on the boat. I hope to someday shoot a race. On a 35' boat there is just not the room for a racing crew and a photog.

Great tip ! Thank you for that Hans.

My first time, but I will certainly be seeking out further yachting events in future.

Not much I can add, except to say that I also found these photos to be fascinating. I have no familiarity with sailboat racing, so for me this is like peeking at a different world.

Thank you Mtnman & Patty - I'm pleased you both found these interesting as that was after all the whole point, to show people an event they may otherwise not get to see or know much about.
