Hi Peter

The good news can be found in the forum "New to the IOM Forum? Please start here...", and look up the topic "How do I post a picture, a link, or a document?"

The bad news is that "... you can only link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server...", so giving the link to the Web site was fine. But if you have the enthusiasm to establish the exact name of the file, you could reference it as an image -- here it is:


... and the name of the image file is "0RAA2AzYTPXqZ!rDdWwpQFQZRRPog*sxwZEnj6zXaTQVJxf77syY3cU3ZIDPd27em3d*00SEzArtghe4e2n2xgoPA1oSk9w*2*C06mjlFHSY/ROUND4.JPG?dc=4675457818342928523"

Yep, that's a Highlander.
That's some real nice looking water! Where is it, and when is the regatta? :lol:

I think it's Rick Martin's old Highlander.

Good eye Rob. Yes that is my 1999 Highlander which was sold to Ed Morales of the Philippines who sails it in Doha Qatar.
