first and last

We love this shot of reigning Etchells World Champions, Iain Murray, Colin Beashel and Richie Allanson taken from the Mini Regatta Sydney Harbour.

You can just sort of feel their years of sailing together and  how close they are. More than a few of you have mates that you have raced with for years, and how special that relationship becomes over the course of all the races you have won and lost together. The teamwork and camaraderie that gets built, the hours in the yacht club bars, digging a vibe and a scene that is truly unique and amazing.

Thanks to David Mandelberg for this beautiful photo. Maybe we’re getting soft, but this picture evoked some heartfelt emotions and the title from this song. – ed.
