Yachting photographer Alison Langley, based in Portland, Maine, has appropriately named the 2005 edition of her popular wall calendar “Under Sail.”

The calendar depicts full-color photos of classic yachts in action.

“For me, classic boats are not only about sitting at anchor in beautiful light, but also about action,” says Langley. “The reason to get aboard a boat is to feel the wind, to feel the spray and to see her come to life. In my photographs I try to convey the thrill of sailing a classic and the joy of being on the water. “

Photos for the calendar were taken during Langley’s recent trips around the world, including the Mediterranean Classic Yacht circuit in Cannes and St. Tropez; the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta; Cowes Jubilee, England; and the New England coast.

The calendar retails for $12.99, and is available at West Marine, L.L. Bean and other retail outlets nationwide. The calendar can also be purchased directly from Alison Langley by calling (207) 236-7900 or by going to www.langleyphoto.com.
