Beautiful shot and a beautiful boat. I used to race Lasers and they were a shedload of fun, but the one time I got to sail a skiff (pretty sure it was a 14) was just the most fun I've ever had on the water. Those things absolutely fly.

Thanks for the comments.
They have changed a lot since I sailed in them 30 years ago.

Great photo Richard!

Never ceases to amaze me how much sail area you can stuff on a small boat and still keep it upright. Must go like hell...
