Steve Eliasen sent this photo from Green Bay, WI, where they apparently take their O'pen BIC sailing pretty seriously this time of year.

Shooter Chris Cameron captures the arrival of the BMW Oracle Racing America's Cup class boats in Auckland, NZL for use in the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series 2009.

John Roberson took this image of the 2008 ISAF World Match Racing Champions, Bahrain Team Pindar Winning crew: (from left): Rich Sydenham, Simon Shaw, Ian Williams (skipper) Mark Nichols, Gerry Mitchell.

Just another day of racing RC44's in the Canary Islands, working our way upwind toward barren volcanic mountains. What else would you expect off the African continent? Photo by Gilles Martin-Raget.

With all the talk this week in Scuttlebutt about ice boating and suspect speed records, Harry Melges III shared this photo from his office wall of "Ferdinand" or better known as "The Bull", which he says is the real deal, and can take on any of the purported speed demons. Nothing like a little smack talk in mid December.

The Cochin, India stop for the Volvo Ocean Race has been... interesting.
