Photos from the Volvo Ocean Race

On Friday, the Big Picture blog featured a selection of 31 gorgeous shots from the Volvo Ocean Race by Ericsson Racing team photographer Oskar Kihlborg, who appears to have just about the best job in the world.

The Race Village has been hosting many great events — sailing-related and otherwise — on the Fan Pier since April 24, including this past weekend’s exciting in-port races. If you’ve been down to the site for the photo-ops, post a link to your photos in the comments below! And if you haven’t gotten to it yet, you still have time — things remain in full swing this week until the teams depart for Galway, Ireland on Saturday.



  1. Hear is a link to the shots I took on Saturday and Sunday May 9th and 10th.. Sunday was the best day. Nice Puffs of wind and if you were they you got to see the team play and race.. Amazing with so much sill and grace. Saturday the races got off to a late start due to weather and a fog bank out in the outer harbor. My Favorite well who els but the home team Puma that nice bright red sail GO Puma
