For to grow up cheering for the Boston Red Sox, Volvo Ocean Race skipper Kenny Read was living when he threw out the first pitch in their game the dream Wednesday night. Here he check in with Red Sox manager Terry Francona. Photo by Sally Collison.

From Marcin Kunicki, Community Boating: "Taking a break from VOLVO ocean racing, Javier de la Plaza (crewing) from Telefonica Black came to Community Boating Boston to sail a Cape Cod keel Mercury to practice for the upcoming legs of the race. Just goes to show that no matter how big a boat you sail, small-boat skills are equally as important."
