Photographer Chris Cameron captures a moment of bedlam at the Omega Auckland Match Racing Regatta, where a fleet of elite match racers are tuning their skills for next week's Louis Vuitton Trophy Auckland event in America's Cup Class boats.

Neither rain nor sleet nor snow, all of which had combined to cancel flights and delay trains in the Northeast, could deter Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.) and Bora Gulari (Detroit, Mich.) from getting to Manhattan (NY) last Friday for their moment in the spotlight at US SAILING’s Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Awards ceremony.

There is a growing trend for regattas to provide real time online scoring updates, but what about on-the-water trophy presentations? Here (we assume) are the winners at the Dubai Traditional 22ft Dhow Championships, organised by Dubai International Marine Club.
