As Liberty and Australia II dueled off Newport, R.I. two months ago, a small figure in a motorboat captured their every move. Zipped into a foul-weather suit, her tawny hair braided, Sharon Green was on the job as a marine photographer. At 23, the 5'2" Canadian has focused her waterproof cameras on 12-meter yachts, ice boats and Windsurfers around the world. Green, who has shot covers for leading North American sailing magazines, reserves her best color photographs for the "Ultimate Sailing Calendar," which she has published and distributed for two years. Sharon says her work is "dangerous but exhilarating; I've been to chiropractors to put me together again after a regatta." Green grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and began sailing at age 7. Photography came into focus when her father, an auto-parts manufacturer and accomplished sailor, built the Evergreen, a 41-foot yacht that won the 1978 Canada's Cup. Sharon's shots of the emerald-hulled boat launched her career; she left college after two years and set sail as a full-time photographer. Boating has profoundly affected her romantic life as well. She met husband Steve Curtis, a Connecticut importer of windsurfing equipment, at a 1981 competition. As her motorboat foundered in rough water, he came by in a larger boat and gallantly scooped her to safety. It's been smooth sailing ever since.
