Neat photo, please help Will win!

Will Calver sailed to New zealand from the UK with his wife and two youngsters the several years back. we met him along the tradewind route. He's a photographer, and now has a lovely studio right on the waterfront in Auckland. One of his pics is finalist for a major competition of yacht racing photos. There is a public vote and if you follow this link -

I think you will agree - he deserves our vote. All the other pics are of high tech expensive machines - but this one captures what most of us can enjoy doing, using the boat we own to get out on the water to enjoy a fun race around the bouys. I feel very connected to this photo as I know not only Will who took it, but also the subject, Bill Sellers who built his own cruising boat and sailed it for dozens of years (engine free). Now at 78 he has slowed down and sails mostly around New Zealand, and of course gets out for afternoon races.
