Big Deal, at Big Boat

Big Deal, at Big Boat

by Sharon Green October 10, 2017

The Rolex Big Boat Series has been held at St. Francis Yacht Club since 1964. As the name says, it was originally a showcase for the really big boats (and egos) of San Francisco Bay to swagger and lock horns, and has been “must do” for me each September, since the early 1980s.

J Class Worlds

by Sharon Green September 11, 2017

The regatta was plagued with light air, causing dock holds and long postponements, waiting for the sea breeze to fill in. One day they didn’t start racing until late late afternoon! That is frustrating and discouraging, all that lost momentum, and lost time and money too; trying to time the aerials, with a

The last six weeks I have been eating, drinking, sleeping Transpac – the 2,225-mile sailboat race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, that’s been held every two years for the last century. But in truth, we have hardly been sleeping. Sometimes I wouldn’t even know what day it was. Betsy, who was doing all the logistics and ETA’s for boats,

The Throes of Transpac

The Throes of Transpac

by Sharon Green July 09, 2017

I wake up to a ‘tap-tap-tap’ coming from a dark corner of the hotel room. It’s barely 6AM and Sharon is already up, processing cards from yesterday’s shoot. I’ve been scrunched on a sliver of my bed – the other half stacked with foulies and luggage, as every inch of floor space is covered with camera equipment, camera batteries

TRANSPAC PREP

Transpac is one of my favorite events to shoot – but also the most exhausting, with nearly a month of non-stop running around!

One of our goals is to get at last one really stellar image of each boat, for the slide show at the prize-giving in Honolulu. Presenting this grand finale to an epic journey,

2017 America's Cup

by Sharon Green June 22, 2017

How many America’s Cups have you been to?

My first was 1983 which was also the first time I flew in a helicopter. I was in the air for the historic final race when Australia II won the Cup in Newport, RI. I have been to almost every America's Cup since.

Shot & Conquered

Shot & Conquered

by Sharon Green June 17, 2017

We really wanted to get onboard with this race, the minute we heard about it. Big boats, going to weather in the Santa Barbara Channel, before turning the corner and heading to San Diego: what a great setting and epic breeze! The 2015 race was amazing – but last year we were shut out by the fog. So I was pretty nervous about booking a helicopter this year.
