The best boating pictures from around the world

Our weekly roundup of the best boating pictures from across the globe this week, featuring mud wrestling, naval flypasts and an action figure

In this week’s roundup of the world’s best boating photos , we have a strong military feel with South Korean gunners taking aim at a pirate ship, a flypast over the capital in honour of 100 years of naval aviation and a brand new Royal Navy action figure.

Oh, and we’ve got women? mud wrestling. The link might not be as tenuous as you think – the mud they’re wrestling in was extracted from the seabed and transported to land in – you guessed it – a boat (not pictured).

Head to our gallery to see all the photos, and check out previous weeks’ best boating photos .

We’ve also uploaded photos of a boat fire at Old Windsor Lock on the Thames last weekend, and MBM’s Claire Frew has updated our Cruising Club gallery .
