Welcome to a site dedicated to images of small boat sailing, racing, and the people who do it. These photo essays cover a variety of events from local fun days on the water to world level competition. My full image collections are much larger but the photos here were selected to give the feeling of being there for the event.

Are you in the picture? Make printouts, email copies, and use freely for your own personal non-commercial purposes. You can buy photo quality prints, high resolution images, or CD compilations of these images and others from the same events.
