Rolex Farr 40 Worlds - Final Day Images from Crosbie Lorimer

Hooligan rounds in front of iMpi - Rolex Farr 40 World Championships
The best of the weather for the 2011 Farr 40 World Championships off Sydney Heads was saved for the last day of racing, with bright sunshine and a building breeze making for great sailing and ideal conditions for photographers.

Crosbie Lorimer, who has painful memories of several years of 'hiking til it hurts' as a mastman on a Farr 40, enjoyed a more relaxed view of the action yesterday from a media boat.

Here are some of his images of the final day's racing.
