Shark World Championships underway in Toronto

'Heading for the line with 30 seconds to go.'    Brian Taylor
The 2014 Shark World Championships began today August 24 with a practice race and will continue until Friday the 29th.

The day was perfect for sailing, sunny, pretty much cloudless with a nice 8-12 knot wind from the east. 52 boats were on the start line.
