Ken: Are you back in SF?
Hiya, George: I wondered where you'd run off to. Sounds like you had a great time in NZ. Wish I was there, though I was virtually there for the Leg Five start of the vVOR race.
George E. Smith
I just got back from Auckland, where Cheryl and I watched the Volvo boats in the two in harbor races, and then chased them out of the Harbor. On Sat, 17, we sailed on Lion New Zealand, out to watch the VIH race, and then we put up sails and tooled around ourselves in Sir Peter Blake's first Whitbread boat, then on Sun, we watched the race from my cousin's 40 ft Launch, and then chased them out past Rangitoto, till we couldn't keep up with the race boats. Sailing one of those 70 footers is different again from the AC boats. Sail NZ now has AC#68, one of the 2003 German boats, as well as #41, the 1995 Japanese boat. By the Way; Camper easily won the Saturday in harbor race, by playing the tidal flow against the out of towners. Puma showed a lot of speed; good to see Ken Read still going at it.
Hey Chuck ,
Keep up the good work, see you in VOR.
superb images, will check your site on regular basis.
Chuck, It was nice meeting you on Saturday...and thanks for the helpful info. We'll be sure to go earlier next year to avoid the crowds and traffic congestion. Great photos from the Blue Angels' practice last Thursday...
when are you posting the april FP sessions?
Last thur near the cliff house you gave us helpful info. thanks
"Sad"? Nahh! 64 is the new 63, right? And since we're talking about a tune by the boyz from Liverpool; ... re their last concert, I wish we'd bought a few dozen programs and dug through the debris for a bunch of ticket stubs from that night. We could ALL retire!
Well, almost a year later, she gets the message! (I am a "techno-Amish!") By the way, you can sing that to me in August! (Sad, isn't it?) :(
Susan: Wow! THAT was certainly unexpected. Many thanks!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (Sorry...I just had to do it!) :)
hey chuck you never posted the pictures from 4-29-08.
do you still have them and if you do can you send them to me.
thanks Pierre. email@example.com
Pierre: I'm glad you liked them.
thanks chuck for taking shots of me surfing on 4-29-08. i can send them to my family on the eastcoast.
Hiya Chris. Good to hear that you're back in my favorite place on the whole planet. Is Postcards still there?

Margie and Huck Finn
Thanks for the gorgeous photos of Huck (Bear #17, red/white/blue spinnaker) at the last Master Mariners. How much for an 8 x 10 or so?
James: Thanks for the compliments. They mean a lot, especially from a shooter like yourself. Great images in your galleries, and 2,645,828 views! Nice work.
Thank you for sharing these amazing photos! Your high-speed shots are incredible. Every image is carefully crafted and the presentation is top-notch. There's so much to learn from you and your photos.
You're a kind, humble man too, which makes you one of my favorite artist! Happy shooting.
invaderchelsee: Wow! That's quite a compliment. Thanks! I'd suggest saving the money you'd spend on PhotoShop and check out Corel's PaintShopPro XI instead. It's much less expensive, and has all the features you'll need. I've used PaintShopPro for years for cropping and cleaning dust spots. The new Sigma SD14 and new Sigma PhotoPro program doesn't need much post-production tweaking. Maybe spend the money you'll save on good lenses? Which cameras are you considering?
When I get photoshop and a new camera, I'm going to model my work after you.
Keep going forward. You have so much potential.
David: Thanks! Sorry I missed you at the Allianz Cup. I was shooting the event for Sail-World.com and had to leave to upload photos as soon as we docked the RIB. So I missed all the fun stuff. Tough life ;)
Wonderful and informative web site.I used information from that site its great.
Excellent, love it!
What a great site
chuck, thanks for checking. You did have your camera out (I saw) but maybe you did not take any. Thnanks for looking. Paul.
Paul: I checked my shots, and though I was out there on June 5th for awhile, I didn't do any shooting. Yet another boring meeting to attend instead.
Hey chuck, how about 5 june Thanks again, Paul
Yeah, June 5th. It was a MOnday and I remember you being there.
Paul: I'm working on some of the recent days, but they're not first in line. Some shots from a wedding and a gallery opening have to be dealt with first. Are you certain it was June 5th? Maybe the 6th?
Chuck do you have pictures from the fort from June 5?
Joe: I use a Sigma/Foveon SD9.
Great pics! What camera do you use?
Lins: Damn. Thanks for the heads-up. I was going crazy trying to find "Autsralia" on the map. ;) ...and thanks for the kind words! Have you got your shots online?
Ah shit.....That should be ....AUSTRALIA......just a typo!!
Hey Mate...I am an amateur pic snapper with some damn good sailing action and general racing shots (in my opinion) but yours are the tops.
Love your website.
Does anyone have pictures of fruty's memorial yesterday?
Tony: Of course I remember you, and congratulations for those awards! I'll contact you by email.
chuck, i dont know if you rember me but im bigt117 from aol, we use to talk regularaly about a year ago when you into duced me to sigma camera's i just wanted to let you know that i own a Sigma SA-7 now and am VERY pleased with it, i have entered photo's in 1 4-H compition and got blue ribbions on both of my pictures, and another one reciving honorable mention, i thank you very much for introducing me to Sigma camera's and wanted to stay in contact again, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Leo: The 12/24/05 shots are next in line for loading. They should be up by Monday or Tuesday, (1/9 1/10).
Wondering when you think your photos from December 24th (christmas eve) at O.B. will go up. I was out in front of Sloat that day and got some good lefts, wondering how they came out. Judging from the stuff on your website they probably look really good.
I just read your interview for the second time and viewed the photographs. It is easy to see where your heart lies! Wonderful job. It takes the viewer right to the ocean.
Renee does a great job with the interviews. Asks all the questions fellow artist like to hear! Dora (last month's interviewee!!!)
Chuck....keep firing away. Sure, be sensitive to crowding issues when appropriate but don't let the idiots tell you what to do. Everyone I know loves seeing your pics whether they were there that day or not. "After the fact" photo's are not the problem. Advanced forecasting and up to date reports are.
Chuck put up your old surf pictures
Ernsy: Yup, I'll be back soon. But first I have to finish the yacht stuff. Hell, I still have surfing shots from months ago to go through! See you out there.
not coming back to the fort anymore?
Thanks! I've got a bunch more to load from the BBS and Etchells Worlds. If all goes well, they'll be up later this week. Stay tuned.
Absoletely GREAT shots at the SF Rolex Big Boat Series as referenced on the 20 Sept., Sailing Anarchy web site. Fantastic job!
Eli: I've got about 30 days of shots that need to be processed and posted. I'll put 3/10 at the top of the list. I'm still in North Carolina until July 10th, and on a dog-slow dial-up connection. I'll try to load 3/10, but they may have to wait till I get back to SF.
Hiya, Mr. Follet. I figured you'd be in some Louisana prison farm by now. We're going back in your direction in two weeks, to Figure Eight and Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina. Just in time for hurricane season, again. I'll wave to ya as I fly over the dismal swamps.
I thought there was going to be photos of chuck in his leopard print speedos in his gallery site. Damn, I'm disappointed. (A wondering cajun)
Wow! Now, THAT'S a compliment! Thanks! There's a bunch more from the Big Week that I'll be adding to the gallery soon.
Now I've got a serious jones on. It looks so FUN. Maybe it's amnesia, but even that big day looks ... surfable:
The combination of beauty and power - I think I would try to paddle out even knowing I probably wouldn't make it past the whitewater, just to be near those waves, like prostrating myself before some goddess.
THis, on the other hand, is the picture that captures the vibe of fun for me, like the slightly fleshy, real friendly girl who keeps smiling at you with big sparkly eyes, and laughs at all your jokes, tossing her head back, then forward, and then looking at you through a curtain of silky hair:

Everyone is fine, thanks! And you? We'll be North Carolina for the next few weeks, and I'll be shooting some East Coast surfers, for a change. I'll give you a call.
Just happened upon your site while surfing for double handed races.
How are you, Helen, and Max?
Best wishes, Chuck Burns
You took some pictures two years ago of myself and crew. we had spoken originally about getting some however we never made contact again. How can I get in touch with you?
