Wilson Trophy at West Kirby in 2013 © ACM Jenkins

In a series of articles celebrating the grins that epic splashdowns bring on (well, later) we start with a team racing event - just like last week - this time, snapped by Alan Jenkins.

This was the Wilson Trophy 2013, on the Saturday, before everyone changed down to smaller sails. I captured several images of this manoeuvre, but the best one shows the wonderfully horizontal and straight body position of the helmsman!

Continuing that theme, here we have another sailor demonstrating good core strength, sent in by Nicola Willars.

Here is a picture of our daughter capsizing her Topper at Notts County Sailing Club during one of their Youth Squad training days. Yes, she was trying extremely hard to stay dry!

It looks like the young lady is unsure how to reverse the position of her feet/hands without falling off.

Below we have an entry from Bob Ross, who has mastered the art of pressing the shutter at just the right moment.

I took this picture during the 2009 Laser Masters World Championship in Sydney. Right place, right time.

Next up is a perfectly ordinary capsize photograph with nothing amusing... oh wait, what is that yellow thing he's holding?

It's sunny and it's Salcombe, what's not to like? Helm Joe Tosh from Upper Thames SC is still able to find time to smile for the camera as his crew fights for his life.

Looks like he is about to position the anti capsize centreboard aid.... a bit too late.

Thanks to Will Loy for submitting this one.

We end with our first video submission. Thank you to Scott McDonald. We particularly enjoy the way the rudder had to be rescued in this one!

Another windy day on Port Phillip Bay and a few of us decided to take a Taipan 5.7 catamaran out and had some issues...
