Favorite Sailing Photo

Adam Turinas, the famous sailing blogger, challenged us to blog our favorite sailing photo. I like a lot of the shots I took of kids I taught to sail a few years back. There's something very cute about a little kid in an Optimist with a big grin when you can just see that he or she gets it, sailing really is the more fun than video games. But there's also something that feels a bit weird about posting pictures of other people's kids on the Internet.

So here is the other extreme of small boat sailing. Laser World Champion Gustavo Lima catching a ride down a huge breaking wave at Cabarete, the best place in the world to sail Lasers.
