This is a series of shots from the Squamish Yacht Club's racing program, along with some practicing Opti sailors intermixed.... Squamish is about 25 miles from Vancouver BC at the end of one of our typical coastal fiords. Spectacular scenery, strong inflow winds and flat water make this area a racer's dream for sailors and kiteboarders alike.

Shots by our good friend Peter Lang, Enjoy!!

I'll chime in, too....great shots!!!

I especially like the pics of the Ericson 33 (like my boat) flying the chute in what appears to be very close quarters! In one shot they look like the can "collect" the kitesailor who is in the water before slamming into the breakwater! :eek: Maybe it is not as close as it looks in the pics.

Jalapeno Martin 242 (one of our former boats)
Alameda Ericson 33

A good mixed fleet!
