Discouraging early starters at the Rolex Middle Sea Race. Photo by Rolex/Kurt Arrigo.

From the aerial perspective, even the mighty Hanuman [Endeavor II] J-Class boat [out of water on stands] and the 142 foot ketch "Rebecca" look small. As the fall chill rolls in, The Newport Shipyard in Newport, RI is busy preparing super yachts for long journeys south. Photo by William Tuthill.

Britannia, the famous yacht originally owned by King George V, son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, was the most famous racing yacht in the world at the turn of the last century. A replica of this prestigious J Class yacht, K1 Britania, is amid a rebuild at her former home in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

During the Jean Schenck Memorial (team race) Regatta last weekend at Newport Harbor Yacht Club, competitors gathered for an epic evening of raingutter racing. After 30+ races, it came down to tricked out catamaran versus an old-school monohul. The StFYC powered monohul prevailed in a very competitive finals match. Photo by John Fuller.

An idea to keep from catching kelp on the keel. This 27-foot prototype seeks to test concepts that will be used on a larger boat that has desires to set speed records.

When in doubt, do a headcount. Photo by Frank Quealey, Australian 18 Footers League
