(Note: this was posted in February but backdated to December).
In mid-December Sydney hosted the final act of the 2015 Extreme Sailing Series. I went down by myself for a few hours on the Saturday afternoon and then returned for the entire afternoon of the Sunday with friends. My friends had never seen yacht racing before and really enjoyed it, it was fun trying to explain all the technical terms of yacht racing to them that I had learnt as a child watching the Americas’s Cup Coverage on TV.
Below are a few photos of the racing near Farm Cove in Sydney Harbour.

A few weeks ago Act 8 of the Extreme Sailing Series was held in Sydney.
I went down to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair to watch some of the racing on the afternoon of the first day.
Below are a few photos taken from the shoreline.
Okay the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series started in Auckland on Friday.
I watched the first day of racing streaming on the Internet and yesterday I headed up North Head to watch it live. You can check out the live photos on facebook http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=88301&id=656762268&ref=mf
But below are some screenshots from the online footage, Virtual Eye has really come a long way over the years and it is very impressive this year.
