Award-winning photographer Sharon Green has been capturing the breathtaking excitement of sailboat racing since 1983, when she launched the Ultimate Sailing Calendar. Her inimitable style is more analogous to art than sports photography, with a dramatic use of color, light, energy and form that brings the viewer into the heart of the fray to fully experience the passion, bustle and splendor of yacht racing.
Green's images appear annually in the Ultimate Sailing Calendar, in addition to books, periodicals and exhibits worldwide, and adorn her line of boating gifts and apparel created for elite yacht racing enthusiasts. And in sold-out speaking engagements Green inspires audiences with tales of her extraordinary career as a commissioned photographer for media outlets, private yacht owners, regattas, and campaigns - including one-half dozen America's Cups.
During her dacades-long mission to capture the Ultimate Sailing image, Green says, "Boats and sails continue to change, in an endless evolution of design and construction; but the beauty, drama and intensity of sailboat racing endures." THIS is Ultimate Sailing!
For nearly a decade we’ve had the pleasure of featuring Matias Capizzano’s work in the Ultimate Sailing Calendar. Featuring dinghies – like our July Optis – frequently manned by young sailors; it’s a great equalizer to the big boats and offshore venues you typically find in the calendar.
Even though these are small boats, the vigor and excitement these competitors display are no less intense than America’s Cup or Volvo Ocean racers. No matter what size your vessel, sailboat racing can be an intense sport! And dinghy sailing is an inspiring tribute to our origins as sailors. No one started their racing career on a TP52! The juniors featured in Matias’ images are the rock stars of tomorrow.
