What is in the Photos section (tab at the top of page)? It all seems very unclear to me. Is it all Y&Y magazine shots?, Selected professional photos (from who?) or ??

Can anyone submit photos?

The searching doesn't seem too hot either!
I like to take pictures of sailing, but I'd rather be sailing!

The Photos are from articles submitted to the website. so if you submit and Article/sailing report you can attach pictures and they appear in that section as well as in the "News" Section

As for Search, I think you need to be a little clearer.

The search on the photos section (and other sections of the site) does need a load of work. I've got a solution to it - just need the time to implement it. At the moment try just choosing a class or a club name and then choosing a year to see some results. I know it's clunky at the moment but the code is a decade old!

As for what are the photos? That's pretty simple - it's all the photos that go together with articles on the website.

Submitting photos is done through the club@yachtsandyachting.com address and I usually get them at, or around the time, that the corresponding report arrives. I need permission from the photographer and their name and preferrably details of the event they were taken at! I try to caption individually, but if there are a ton of photos then I tend to bulk upload them with a generic title due to time constraints.
