S n' W cover photo
I'm not usually a stickler for things like this -- but I am having a hard time understanding how the latest Cover photo actually made it to the cover? (Ref Vol 53, Number 2 2009)
The picture quality (resolution) is poor, and it seems to depict a Scot in a fair amount of spinnaker distress during what I can only guess is a gybe. The spinnaker has been backwinded and the sheet is now about to be rolled under the hull.
The only thing I can figure out is that the photo DOES lend itself nicely with one of the highlighted articles -- PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES YOU BETTER! [:o)]
