There's something especially thrilling about sailing against a backdrop of one of the world's major cities. And not just because of those weird shifts and puffs coming from in between all the skyscrapers.
So, for this month's sailing bloggers' group participation project I propose that we scour the world to identify the best photos of Sailing in the City. To qualify a photo must be not only an excellent photo of sailing but also have a background of a readily identifiable city, or city landmark. Golden Gate Bridge. Sydney Opera House. Statue of Liberty. Whatever. You get the idea.
As another sample of what I mean here is a photo of Merlin Rockets racing in front of Wembley Stadium in London from the Yachts and Yachting website.
I'm sure you can find much more spectacular examples. So, if you have a blog, please post your Sailing in the City photo there and let me know about it with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you don't have a blog, send me the photo or a link to it via email or in the comments to this post.
However you submit your entry please let me know as much as possible about the location and boats in your picture. If you found it somewhere on the Interwebs please let me know where so that we can acknowledge the photo's owner.
I will post links to the photos and/or the actual photos here. If we get a good response we will have a poll to determine the best Sailing in the City shots. Who knows, if there are enough quality pictures I may even produce a calendar on this theme.
