The only winner out of this collision might be Rolex, and even they probably regret this image. Illusion misjudged the distance and went straight into Kora 5. One person flew into the water, two people broke their ribs, one had severe leg burns and three people went to hospital. Click here for more photos of the crash by Ingrid Abery.

It must be boat show season, as the J Boats team is drumming up interest in their new J 70 that will hit the water by the end of 2011. Click here for more photos.

We know there are friendly folks in the midwest, but this is going too far. Photo taken by Ben Condon at the 2011 U.S. Melges 17 Nationals on White Lake, Michigan.

We didn't get any racing photos from the 2011 Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championship, but Ken Mitchell did send this photo from the hockey game that was held during the event. You should have already figured out that the regatta was held in Canada, that the hockey game was a cross border battle, and that the Canadians won. As for the regatta, click here for the results.

It has been popular among the photographers at the America's Cup World Series event in Plymouth, UK to work the ferris wheel into the background. Photo by Pierrick Contin.

Our money is on this Viper skipper not getting wet and the crew taking a bath in this incident at the Larchmont Leukemia Cup Regatta, hosted by Larchmont Yacht Club. Photo by Maureen Koeppel.

We never get tired of seeing an Open 60 like this. But can you imagine doing this non-stop around the world... singlehanded? Photo by Christophe Launay.

This is what happened to the boom on the Carbon Ocean 82 ‘Aegir’ when somebody accidentally turned on the hydrallic mainsheet. Photo from the Rigging News website.
