With the 2016 Olympics to be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this will soon become a very familiar sight. For now, however, we see some early training before the 2010 Star World Championship in January. Photo by David Thoreson.

From Al Schreitmueller: "A parent displays complete trust in their child, the child shows complete responsibility in carrying our her part, and they are both enjoying their time together. These two will be sailing for a long time."

Who says the sport of sailing has barriers? Heck, even in the right conditions, having a boat to go for a sail isn't needed. Photo by Martin Still, taken on frozen Lake Tuusula in Finland on Dec 14, 2009.

Built in Turkey, here is hull #1 of the one design Farr 25 getting launched.

From Daniel Forster, who was shooting at the SOLAS Big Boat challenge in Sydney, Australia, and now is getting ready for the 22 hours of helicopter time he has booked for the three day Sydney-Hobart Race. Here Daniel captures a crew onboard Wild Oats getting ready for the Cirque du Soleil.

How come that every time there is an O'Pen Bic regatta, the kids are completely distracted, they don't attend the skippers meeting, they miss half the races, and they could care less about following the race course? Will someone please tell these kids to stop having fun and get ready for the starting sequence? Photo by Pearl Yeh.

Thanks to David Edmund-Jones for reminding us that nearly all the problems in the world can be solved with Photo Shop.
