Sunnybrook Yachts image ACTION PHOTOS on the WATER


Local photographer Lynn Gray has a bunch of cool photos on her website - recent Opti & J/24 regattas and more.

Feel free to drop her a note through her website at www.lynngray.ca if your regatta wants an "on the water" record that can be digitized and uploaded.

She'll also shoot your boat underway or in a still scene if you need something to hang on the wall of your office or den. You will also find Lynn cruising Bedford Basin looking for photo ops when not on assignment.
