    I'm as guilt as anyone. I don't have a picture of myself, sailing my boat.

    Post a picture of yourself sailing your boat here in this thread. No posts of boat on trailers, or on land.

    Extra points for the first person to do it.

    50 lashes for anyone who posts here without such a picture.

    Technically not "my" boat, but here's one from the Worlds last year taken by my nephew.

    Photos taken by my (then) six year old son - blame him for the dodgy camera work! I've only been out once this year so far. Will have to brave the cold again this week though. Itching to get back on the water.

    This is my oldest, Ben, & our newest, Zoe.

    Late September last year on the Mactaquac head pond in New Brunswick.

    The Sunfish is presently undergoing deep maintenance & we're keen to add a new sail.

    First picture is of me—sailing "recumbent".

    Second, is a photo of a friend finishing a Sunfish race—next to last.

    (I'm in second place). ;)

    OK, it's not a Sunfish...but this is me on my Sailfish last August in northern Michigan. I am selling this on ebay now to focus on my two Sunfish sailboats. :)

    An adrenaline rush out of Sunsail Club Colonna on the Atlantic side of Antigua. The picture was taken in Feb 2006. The winds tend to be strong and consistent around that time of the year.

    The boat was a leftover from the 2001 Worlds which was held at that location. Eduardo Cordero was the winner (once again). Unfortunately, the boats were not maintained and aren't available anymore to be taken out by guests of the Club. The ('race') sail may have been a replacement of the one used in the Worlds.

    Ok I'm not technically sailing on this one, but is the closets thing I have to it. Plus, thanks to Wayne it shows how cool it might look in the not so distant future:cool:. Thanks Wayne!

    Wavedancer, are you in some sort of "backwards reach" on that pic of you sailing? :eek::confused::eek: That sail angle just don't look right to me:p:p:p

    I just love the attached video... beautiful music set to a wonderfully windy day and yes it is relevant to this forum as I make a few cameo appearances on my 69 sunfish at the following spots: 59 seconds, 2.11, 2,21, 2.28, 2.42. 2.54 and so on.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    This is my back yard, well it is really in front of the house. Just a five minute walk from the house with my 79 Sunfish on the dolly and I am at my launch site. First shot was taken this evening as I went out for a after dinner sail as tides and wind just right. This is the Minas Basin home of the highest tides in the world 50+ feet vertical. Kingsport is the closet land 5 miles and Cape Blomidon 14 miles in the distance. I am coming in the 1000 foot channel into the harbour. All this water completely empty's twice a day:eek:. Lots of natural challenges sailing here and not for the novice.
    Second picture taken from about 2000 feet away approaching channel to Wolfville NS Harbour. I have seen seals, whales, porpoise, and sturgeon while sailing hear so it's an adventure every time.
