Post your favorite pictures of your RC sailboats

Hey Guys
On another great forum, Modelmayhem we have a thread that started some time ago to have members post their best pictures of their sailboats. The range of boats is huge and some of the photos are beyond amazing. Some are kits, scratch builds, and everything in between.

There are so many great hobbist out there, it would be fun to have place to share yours, and their best photos.

Those of you that know me, know my favorite boat is my Tamiya Yamaha Round the World. So to get the ball rolling. I will post a few of my favorite pictures. The Yamaha is a boat than is very very close to the real boat, and it can be hard to tell one from the other.

Hope you guys will jump in and start posting your favorites. For now how about staying with sailboats, as this is the sailboat section. If we run out of sailing pictures, we could expand to other RC boats?

Thoughts, suggestions are welcomed.

Thank you in advance.

Boomer

Nice thread Boomer, will have to look for the photos taken at my club a few months back.

But here is a couple of my favourites of taken of the second IOM Shadow to be made. Unfortunately some stole it out of the guys car.
These are off another forum so I cannot take the credit for the photos.

I probably have a couple thousand images on my laptop. Here are a few from some local IOM racing in the Los Angeles area.
