[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 2016 World Youth Sailing champs were on Auckland's North Shore in Dec.

The Chinese team (CHN) refused to race because the team from Taiwan (TPE) were flying their national flag - they believe that Taiwan is still part of China. As a compromise they found a Taiwanese Olympic flag.

The regatta was originally to be held in Oman but they wouldn't let Israel take part so it was transferred to Auckland

Hi Jack,
The fights regarding whos is whos will continue till this planet is no more. Nice composition and the reds of the sails have made great visual focal points. Good depth and overall sharpness. Looking through a " flock " of sails, nice presentation.

Boa tarde Jack,
Capture of great plastic beauty, harmony and equilibrium.
Great composition.
