It was picture postcard sailing for the fleet racing in the Telcoinabox Airlie Beach Race Week around the picturesque Whitsunday Islands. It was a great day to be out on the water with a settled breeze ranging from 12 - 18 knots, with some of the fleet experiencing the occasional 20 plus over the deck.

Victorian Sailing Photographer Teri Dodds was happy to be in the warmth of the Whitsundays and shares these images from today's racing.
