International Regattas

I really love international regattas - seeing all nationalities having fun together.

At the recent Asian Federation Youth Championships, where I was on the jury, I took the above snapshot of a Greek and Turkish Optimist together.  In fact, the story is even better - the Turkish family stayed in the Greek family's house in Abu Dhabi.

Sailors came from 13 countries and the race officials/organizers were from: Turkey, Singapore, Japan, India, Holland, USA, Morocco, UK, Oman, UAE.

  1. Yeah, the friendship and camaraderie at international regattas is amazing. I have even been know to talk to an Australian or two occasionally. But I draw the line at New Zealanders.
