World class sailing photog Sander Van Der Borch took a month off from his busy schedule for a cruise with his family, and like most people who live their passion, he just can’t stop working.  Sander had the camera ready when a summer squall came overhead, and grabbed one of the prettiest sailing/lightning shots we’ve ever seen.  Time for new desktop background…

2015 Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour

A broken hand for OMAN skipper Leigh MacMillan saved the 5-boat Cowes GC32 event from the same kind of runaway win the British Tornado vet has been known for in the Extreme Series over the past few years.  Team BAR’s Paul Campbell James subbed in for LeighMac to save the second just ahead of Ernesto Bertarelli on Alinghi, but longtime Swiss Starboater (and GC32 Class Prez) Flavio Marazzi jumped ahead for his first big win in the class with Armin Strom.  There’s some low-budget video and news on the web, but the Sander Van Der Borch photos are top quality as always, as you can see from the shot above.  More of Sander’s work is coming up from our exclusive coverage of the J/70 Worlds next week in La Rochelle, France.

Gerd-Jan in mast

Fresh from their trouncing of Teams SCA and Campos during last weekend’s little Round the Canaries race comes this shot of Brunel bowman Gerd-Jan Poortman standing on Brunel’s forestay.  “Was he up there fixing or inspecting?”, we asked.  “Nope – that pose was on his bucket list.”

While Bouwe and the Brunel team continue to do a good job building fans, we’re surprised that the Alvimedica and Abu Dhabi teams seemed to have dropped off the face of the Earth after their recent transatlantic ‘non-race’, without a single update since about the 19th.  Anyone know more?  Hit the VOR thread.  Sander Van Der Borch photo, and here’s the best cover we’ve found of the Johnny Cash classic that gave this piece its title – or at least the best looking!
