The TF10 – three hulls bringing triple the fun. The TF10 is a foiling trimaran measuring 11 meters [36 ft] in overall length, designed by Morrelli and Melvin, and built and marketed by DNA. Designed to exceed ABS offshore racing yachts requirements and is constructed of pre-preg carbon fibre with a Nomex honeycomb core for a lightweight, yet safe and robust construction. The boat can be offered in strict One Design spec for competition purposes. It is designed to be raced by a competent crew of four or five sailors, in a relatively stable and safe mode over a wide range of wind speeds and sea states.

CARDIFF BOUND https://www.outsideimages.com/blog/2018/5/cardiff-bound ©2018PAULTODD VOLVO NWPT_3.jpg

The Volvo Ocean Race Newport stopover ended today as the boats raced their last in-port race and began the next leg to Cardiff. After days of nasty weather, the fog lifted and the breeze pushed on cue for the start. Team Brunel was the skilled winner of both in-port races, but Mapfre and Dongfeng definitely stirred things up. Check out the photos from the day below. Follow the race at www.volvooceanrace.com

FINE ART PRINTS: THE AMERICA'S CUP https://www.outsideimages.com/blog/2018/1/fine-art-prints-the-americas-cup OINZ_FAP_IMG 1.jpg

We were so happy to get this snap from one of our clients who is interested in all things America’s Cup. They were able to create a great gallery wall in their den with custom prints fulfilled through outsideimages.com. They love it — we love it! It’s special to be able to see how others enjoy and appreciate the work.

Our client chose from the work of Paul Mello. Mello’s impressive collection of photographs capture a distinct era in the sport. Originally shot on film and meticulously scanned by the photographer himself, Mello’s America’s Cup images are thoughtful compositions that demonstrate his romance with sailing. The photographs — covering the 70’s to the 80’s —represent a vibrant time in sailing: Newport, Rhode Island, classic boat aesthetic and certainly the drama of Ted Turner’s pursuit of the cup.

©PAULMELLO.OUTSIDEIMAGES 3.jpg ©PAULMELLO.OUTSIDEIMAGES 4.jpg ©PAULMELLO.OUTSIDEIMAGES 5.jpg ©PAULMELLO.OUTSIDEIMAGES 2.jpg ©PAULMELLO.OUTSIDEIMAGES 6.jpg

Our stock photography library boasts an extensive collection of exclusive America’s Cup images both vintage and new, so check it out... you may find something you love that you want to hang on your wall. If not, no doubt you will still appreciate the story they tell.

LIGHT OF THE WORLDS https://www.outsideimages.com/blog/2017/12/light-of-the-worlds For a sport photographer the J Worlds was a true highlight this summer. If you missed it – you missed out. These commanding boats and the level of athleticism of these sailors is impressive. The conditions too presented a great challenge — thick fog to blue skies. The push to get a great shot was worth it all in the end. Sailing World produced a great feature article with Kimball Livingston that I am proud to have collaborated with on my images. No matter how many times I see my work in print it gives me a thrill. Hopefully you get a chance to grab a copy.

HOLA HABANA! https://www.outsideimages.com/blog/2017/3/hola-habana

It's an honor to have been asked by the St. Petersburg Yacht Club to head down to capture the start of the St. Petersburg – Habana Race this year. The race was run from 1930 until 1958 when the relations between the US and Cuba soured. This year's revival saw a great turnout and is a sure sign that it will grow and be a race to watch next year. Check out the race results at Yacht Scoring.

BEAUTY AND THE BOAT https://www.outsideimages.com/blog/2016/7/beauty-and-the-boat

I'm really inspired by the shots from the 1st day here in Marblehead, Massachusetts for the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta. It was a light day, but those are the days where you have to get creative. When wind is what you need to make the boats go fast and you haven't got it – it becomes more about capturing the mood and form. When I got back to land today and had the first look at what I shot I was reminded of how alluring sailing really is to me. I hope my images help people see the beauty and charm of this sport. Looking forward to shooting tomorrow. Keep scrolling to see a few more images from today...

The urban area of Lisbon extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of over 3 million[3] on an area of 958 km2 (370 sq mi),[3] making it the 9th most populous urban area in the European Union. About 2,831,000[4][5] people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (which represents approximately 27% of the population of the country). Lisbon is the westernmost large city located in Europe, as well as its westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. It lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the Tagus River.
Lisbon is recognised as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education, and tourism.[6][7] It is one of the major economic centres on the continent, with a growing financial sector and the largest/second largest container port on Europe's Atlantic coast.[8] Lisbon Portela Airport serves about 13 million passengers per year; the motorway network and the high-speed rail system of (Alfa Pendular) link the main cities of Portugal.[9] Lisbon is the 23rd most livable city in the World according to lifestyle magazine Monocle.[10] The city is the seventh-most-visited city in Southern Europe, after Istanbul, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens, and Milan, with 1,740,000 tourists in 2009.[11] The Lisbon region is the wealthiest region in Portugal, GDP PPP per capita is 26,100 euros (4.7% higher than the average European Union's GDP PPP per capita). It is the tenth richest metropolitan area by GDP on the continent amounting to 110 billion euros and thus €39,375 per capita, [12] 40% higher than the average European Union's GDP per capita. The city occupies 32nd place of highest gross earnings in the world.[13] Most of the headquarters of multinationals in the country are located in the Lisbon area and it is the ninth city in the world in terms of quantity of international conferences.[14] It is also the political centre of the country, as seat of Government and residence of the Head of State. The seat of the district of Lisbon and the centre of the Lisbon region.
Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest city in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by hundreds of years. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the fifth century, it was captured by the Moors in the eighth century. In 1147, the Crusaders under Afonso Henriques reconquered the city and since then it has been a major political, economic, and cultural centre of Portugal. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon's status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially – by statute or in written form. Its position as the capital has formed through constitutional convention, making its position as de facto capital a part of the Constitution of Portugal.

Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Among all the metropolises in Europe, it has the warmest winters, with average temperatures 15 °C (59 °F) during the day and 8 °C (46 °F) at night from December to February.

Amazing winter sunsets.
El Campello beach With a coast line of 23 km, El Campello offers a varied and attractive coast. At its extreme north there are cliffs and secluded coves with translucent waters. Next to the port and in the old fishermanÕs area, the Carrerlamar beach, regenerated with fine golden sand, runs parallel to the pedestrian promenade. This promenade, together with the port walk, form the leisure and entertainment centre. Finally the Muchavista beach extends to the south along more than 3 km before merging into San Juan beach. The defence and preservation of our coasts has received the blue flag recognition, and the seal of environmental Quality ISO 14.001, for the quality of its waters, the upkeep and cleanliness of its surroundings and for its services and facilities.

Chacma Baboons (Papio ursinus) are the mammal most intimately associated with the Cape of Good Hope. Coastlines of the world and one of the most famous the Cape of Good Hope. There is a misconception that the Cape of Good Hope is the southern tip of Africa, because it was once believed to be the dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In fact, the southernmost point is Cape Agulhas, about 150 kilometres (90 mi) to the east-southeast. The currents of the two oceans meet at the point where the warm-water Agulhas current meets the cold water Benguela current and turns back on itself—a point that fluctuates between Cape Agulhas and Cape Point (about 1.2 kilometres east of the Cape of Good Hope).
