IAN ROMAN/Volvo Ocean Race
Loved the images from the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12? Well, you can now vote for your favourite in the 'Yacht Racing Image of the Year' award. There are five pictures from our race among the 45 images on the entry list.

Both our Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 official photographers Paul Todd and Ian Roman are featured. Todd’s pic was taken at the arrival of Groupama sailing team in Lorient, France, last June, while Roman captured a wet moment on the bow of Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing in July.

Hamish Hooper, MCM for CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand and winner of the Inmarsat Media Crew Member Award, submitted a pic “taken somewhere in the Southern Ocean" on April 9 this year.

Volvo photographer Marc Bow has a CAMPER pic too, at the boat's arrival in China and freelance photographer Ronald Koelink posted a picture taken on board Groupama 4 during a practice race held in Cape Town in December 2011.

The 'Yacht Racing Image of the Year' award debuted in 2009 at the World Yacht Racing Forum. You have 27 days left to vote for your favourite picture, with the 24 best photographs chosen by the public to be displayed during the forum next month in Gothenburg. 

Delegates will then select the five best pictures. A jury will finally select the winning image on December 11.
