After a week of fine racing there was one clear winner at the Finn European Championships, followed by 100 other great sailors. Conditions were quite challenging at times, often very physical, and the week ended with a strong breeze to show the Finn off at its best. Here is a selection of some of the best photos of the week.

The CT scan images have a resolution of about the width of a human hair. The images show the borings made by bioeroders in the coral skeleton.
To study a coral, Tom DeCarlo uses an underwater drill to extract a thin core of its skeleton. The drill hole is sealed with cement so that the coral can continue to grow. In about a year, the coral will have grown completely over the hole, leaving no trace of our sampling.
