Great shot Paul, but I despise boats and their crews that carry advertising.

Looks like a race sponsored by West Marine. Much like the Volvo around the world race or other such things. In this case, I don't think the boats were receiving money for having a West Marine sticker stuck on their bow.
That said, those are the sailing conditions in which I'd be very happy to stay at the dock!

Sponsorship of regattas is a mixed blessing.It may help to reduce entry fees or supply evening entertainment.It can also limit choice;I knew a fellow who was at a regatta sponsored by one of the beer mega-brands and he enjoyed everything but the evening events with the sponsor's anaemic and flavourless beer flowing in abundance.The sponsors that have stuck around for a few years seem to like the demographics of the sailing crowd.

I hope West Marine enjoyed their association with the J70's and the class enjoyed having a sponsor.If it helps to attract a photographer to record striking images,we are all benefitting.

It's nice that sailors love to cuddle.
