Wing sailing is not limited to catamarans and moths. Hard water sailing is in full swing in the north east, with these wing photos taken at Megunticook Lake in Maine submitted by William Tuthill.

This was explained to us as a wall of water that slammed into a Musto Perforamcne Skiff, and they were sticking to that story.

Hosting the 172 entrants this week at the International Optimist Australian Nationals is a daunting task, but the space needed to accomadate this fleet is a fraction of what a smilarily sized keelboat constest would be. Think about that the next time you are stuck in traffic driving your spacious automobile.

Uh oh, does the Farr 40 class hear footsteps? Is the newly announced Farr 400 looking to take its place?

Here is a bonus photo from the 29er World Championship, held last week in Mar del Plata, Argentina. Photo by local shooter Matias Capizzano.

The Ft. Lauderdale to Key West Race began Wednesday for 40+ boats, taking them on a 160-mile coastal race. Hap Fauth's R/P 69' Mini Maxi Bella Mente got the prestige of line honors, but was just short of the record. Photos by John Payne and Marco Oquendo.

Photographer Chris Cameron was on hand to see the prototype AC45 catamaran hulls being moved Thursday from the Warkworth manufacturing facility down to Auckland's Viaduct Basin for assembly. Christening celebration scheduled for February 8th.
