The sailboats in this collection were entries in the 2001-2002 Whitbread Round the World Race, now renamed the Volvo Ocean Race. The race is the most prestigious event in the professional sailing calendar, which also includes the Americas Cup. I was lucky enough to be aboard a Coast Guard buoy tender that served as one of the starting line points during the Annapolis, MD leg of the race and took a number of photographs to use as source material for the paintings.
