January 20, 2104: Quantum Key West 2014 kicked off slowly today with barely enough breeze to sail. In fact, the nearly 60-boat J/70 fleet couldn't find enough wind to race, while divisions 1 and 3 paraded slowly around the buoys. We made the best of the sunny yet otherwise unimpressive day by taking a few wide-angle shots with our underwater housing. We're looking forward to some great action throughout the rest of the week!

January 21, 2014: We saw it all today: rain, heavy wind, light wind and sun, as a front came through. Getting soaked in the squalls that rolled across the courses was tolerable in exchange for the black clouds that provided a great background for some of our photos.

January 22, 2014: Every class sailed 3 races today in up-and-down wind in the teens with bright sunshine playing popping in and out from behind clouds. It was a great catch-up day for racing and a pretty good day for photos.

January 23, 2014: Today = Yesterday - Clouds. (That's a minus sign). Though the wind was farther east today and started off a bit stronger, today was pretty much a sunnier repeat of yesterday. All classes enjoyed 3 races in good conditions.

January 24, 2014: These are the conditions we've been waiting for! The 20-25 knots kept bows popping up out of the water nicely to get their photos taken. Quantum Key West 2014 went out with a bang!

Quantum Key West Race Week 2013: What a week! 5 solid days of racing, warm temperatures and sunshine.  You just can't ask for anything more, as a sailor or a photographer. Top of the list for this year's highlights is the new J70 fleet.  Many of the owners unwrapped their new boats for the first time here in Key West, and they loved how they sailed! Our photos say it all.  Other fleets that returned with big numbers were the TP52s, Swan 42s, Farr 400s, Farr 40s, Melges 32s and Melges 24s.  See the photos here.  See the results here.

2012's Key West Race Week: Day 1 was a day for adrenaline junkies, with lumpy seas and 20 knots of breeze. In spite of diminishing breeze on Tuesday, all three circles were able to sail three races, and Key West translucent waters were at their best. The week finished with a bang with another terrific weather day on Friday.  With a good fleet of TP52s, new Farr 400s, the always competitive (and photogenic) Melges 24 and 32 fleets, we've been busy. And Circle 3 is full of competitive J80 and Farr 30 one design teams, plus high-performance PHRF entries like J111s and 1D35s.  See the results here, and our photo highlights here.
