Picture of the Week: Week of July 6, 2009


This week's picture of the week comes from the Channel Island's Race where skipper Arthur Manning really master the art of dry docking his boat. He successfully lodged "Knight Star" his Sadler Starlight 35 on the rocks during the race. The boat had to be hauled off the rocks. Manning was cautious in putting fenders out in the event that the boat toppled over. Seems like the least of his worries at the time. Nearby boats could be heard playing Neil Diamond's 'Love on the Rocks' in homage to his feat.
