Scuttlebutt Photos of the Week
October 1-7, 2010

Here is a random assortment of photos from the sport.

The D-One class, which comes from Luca Devoti's speed shop that builds Finns and Melges boats, is a new singlehander that sails with main only upwind and adds an A-Sail for downwind. Thirty boats were in Valencia last week, where 14 nations were represented at the first Magic Marine BetPro D-One Gold Cup that was won by Argentinean Agustin Zabalua.

Sunsets are intoxicating - avoid operating heavy equipment. Thanks to Robert Austin-LaFrance for the photo from Great Salt Pond, Block Island, RI (upper) and to Carlo Borlenghi for the image from Les Voiles de St Tropez.

If you are looking for romantic date ideas, this has to be near the top of the list. Submitted by Bob Scribner.

If sailing crews unionized, how long would it take for trips up the mast or to the end of the sprit get tangled up in onerous regulations? Photo by Christophe Launay.

We hope this had a happy ending. Taken by Erik Simonson at the Moore 24 U.S. Nationals.
