Ever wonder about the trickle down of wing technology from the America's Cup? Time to buy a bigger car for your Opti gear. Here is what members of Oracle Racing America's Cup team have been doing with their free time. Photo taken by Nick Glanfield at the NZL Optimist Nationals this week. No comment yet by the International Optimist class (but this 'sail' is definitely not class legal).

Let's be honest. If you were setting out on a 480nm race, wouldn't you prefer the comforts of the Warwick 54 Moonblue over a low freeboard racey boat? Organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, the San Fernando Race started this week in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. Photo by RHKYC / Koko Mueller.

It wasn't all sprit boats and high performance fantasy at Charleston Race Week. Here we see the Tarten 10 one design fleet crossing tacks. Are those dacron mains? Photo by

Youth sailors from all over the United States converged last week on Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Long Beach, CA to participate in the 2011 CISA Advanced Racing Clinic. Photo includes 2011 CISA Clinic Regatta winners with Leslie Disney.

Here are images of the new TR 3.6 team racing dinghy sailing in Schull, Co Cork Ireland, the venue for this year's ISAF Team Racing World Championship on Aug 27-Sept 4. Twenty-five of these boats will be supplied for the Worlds. The TR 3.6 is an institutionalized Firefly, using the same hull and sail plan but cheaper to build and to repair.

If you live in areas that get a 'real' winter, it doesn't take much for the boardshorts to come out in the spring. But one dude from Yale looks to be ahead of the curve. Photos by Ken Legler.

Off the beach college racing would seem more fitting in Florida or California, not Rhode Island in April. Here are images from the Dinghy New England Championship that was hosted by the University of Rhode Island. Photos by Ken Legler/Tufts.
