Peter Danby Photos from the '98 Worlds

Well known Sailing Photographer Mr. Peter Danby has very graciously agreed to let the American Section use these terrific images, on the Web and in Tank Talk, only. For any other use, please contact him. Mr. Danby has been a 505 Class insider for many years, and has taken some of the better known images of 505s. Thank you Mr. Danby!

OUCH! Despite the huge fleet on
one start, and the open rather
than prequalifers-only Worlds,
only one boat was badly damaged...
in the practice race.
