JP Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Cup - There are just four days to go before the first races in Falmouth, UK and the sailors are making last minute preparations for the battle that lies ahead.

This gallery of images from Lee Whitehead showcases some of the sailors that we will see racing on Falmouth Bay next week.

Jorge Zarif (BRA) – Placed an excellent ninth in last week's UK Nationals and already qualified for Olympics, picking up the 18th and final place available in Perth.

Haris Papodopolous (CYP) – Still trying to qualify his nation for a place at the 2012 Olympics. Competed in China in 2008 where he placed 22nd.

Michael Maier (CZE) – With four Olympics already under his belt, Maier is a class veteran. The Czech Republic still has to qualify for Weymouth, but Maier or the young Tomas Vika, should achieve that next week.
