Sailing Souls Painting




Sailboat racing, governed by the International Sailing Federation, generally fits into one of two categories: Class (where sailboats are similar and the first to finish wins) and Handicap (where boats of different types sail against each other and are scored based on their handicaps). Sailboat racing ranges from single person dinghy racing to large boats with 10 or 20 crew and from small boats costing a few thousand dollars to multi-million dollar America's Cup or Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race campaigns. Most sailboat and yacht racing is done in coastal or inland waters. However, in terms of endurance and risk to life, ocean races such as the Volvo Ocean Race, the solo VELUX 5 Oceans Race, and the non-stop solo Vendee Globe, rate as some of the most extreme and dangerous sporting events. Not only do participants compete for days with little rest, but an unexpected storm, a single equipment failure, or collision with an ice floe could result in the sailboat being disabled or sunk hundreds or thousands of miles from search and rescue.

Marilyn McNish
Lake Winnipeg is just as dangerous because it's so shallow and the weather can change in a flash. You have captured an intense view of a turbulent game the lake and yacht can play, and the captains skill will depict the outcome. Beautifully painted! I love how your paintings tell a story! Well done! vf mm
