Paul Cayard's dad Pierre, who originally built Paul's El Toro in 1968, has his hands back on it after a 35 year absence. They recently tracked it down, and now Pierre plans to restore it for the National Sailing Hall Of Fame. Click here for more photos and story by Erik Simonson.

Is this what happens when sailors use GU Energy Gel? Photo by Sergei Zavarin from the J/Fest regatta at St. Francis Yacht Club.

Happy campers at Team New Zealand as they launched their new boat this week for the 2011-12 Volvo Ocean Race. Photos by Chris Cameron/CAMPER.

Another Volvo Ocean Race entry vying for the podium is the PUMA Ocean Racing team. On a day when our x-ray spy camera was in for repairs, you will need to use your imagination of the boat from this photo taken outside of PUMA's build bay at New England Boatworks.

The inaugural Nationsí Cup was organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, which attracted 58 teams from 19 nations. Can you guess which country this team represents?

When the 2011 Audi MedCup season begins next month, six new build TP52ís are expected. Among them will be Ran IV - the 2011 TP52 designed by Judel/Vrolijk and built at Green Marine in Lymington, UK. She has just arrived in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and photographer Christophe Launay was there for the early trials.

High School sailing teams are getting ready for the 2011 Mallory Championship, the annual fleet racing title that's being held this year in Austin, TX on May 7-8. Southern California is a powerhouse for high school sailing, and the Coronado High School Sailing Team last weekend won the regions qualifier for the championship. Photo by Tamra Henken.

The Wednesday night beercan races began last week in San Francisco at Richmond Yacht Club, which saw a lot of boats pass on the start either due to the 30+ knot winds, or in fear of being humbed by local junior Joe Carter in his Laser. Photo by Matthew Carter.
