The week in pictures

Sailing, soccer and sunsets are just some of the highlights we look back on in our photo round-up from the week that was.







Dave Wilkinson, Dave Price, Captain Don McIntrye and Chris Wilde from the Talisker Bounty Boat complete the first successful re-enactment of the mutiny on the bounty voyage in Kupang, West Timor. The crew sailed the same course and under the same conditions as Captain William Bligh, who embarked on the 4,000 mile open boat journey through the Pacific Ocean 221 years ago.











The Talisker team put their ship through its paces on approach to Kupang.














Brigette van Selm of Wines of South Africa (WOSA) tries her best to avoid the db camera at the WOSA World Cup Braai in Kew Gardens, but the huge glasses are something of a give-away.











Even the presence of super-size glasses can’t make the England vs Algeria World Cup match any more watchable for db‘s Gabby Savage, sat alongside an equally glum David Hennelly at the WOSA World Cup Braai.











A sparse crowd for the Argentina vs Greece World Cup match in the Redchurch Bar in Shoreditch, London.











That’s more like it! db joins drinks industry journalists and the PR team from Clarion Communications at the Hat and Tun in Farringdon, London, to watch England finally find some World Cup form in the 1-0 victory over Slovenia.











db‘s Jane Parkinson (right) and Marie O’Riordan of Chalié Richards sample the wines at Taste a New Romania – The Future of Romanian Wines event. Er, apologies for the unavoidable Paris goblets!
