narrowing gulf

Sailthegulf2014-capizzano-02089

The Gulf state of Qatar has had something of a sordid past on sailing’s world stage, with the Tracy Edwards/Oryx Quest fiasco burning the country’s reputation amongst the sport for the past decade.  But Qatar is coming on again, motivated perhaps by spectacular Omani and Emirati successes in event hosting, team building, and creating thousands of new sailors in nations with similarly rich maritime history to the Qataris.

Someone is clearly spending some money this week on the Sail The Gulf Regatta, flying the undisputed king of Optimist photographers – Matias Capizzano – to the gulf to shoot some of the 200 competitors from 20 countries racing in front of Doha this week.  Apparently the budget ran out before anyone could get results on the regatta site.

In other Opti news, we finally had a look at Capizzano’s coffee table Opti book, and despite the fact that we’re not big fans of the boat, we’ve rarely seen a prettier piece of art come from this sport.  Find out how to pick up one of these 208-page masterpieces here.
