The 2010 Round The Volcano Race at Taal Lake Yacht Club represents not only a great weekend of fun on the water but it is possibly the best opportunity for sailing photography close to Manila. Open to Hobie sports catamarans and dinghies of all shapes and sizes, the Round The Volcano Race offers some great spills and thrills, with the backdrop of Taal Volcano and its spectacular lake.

The Taal Lake Yacht Club is the perfect venue for a weekend out of Manila - just a 90 minute drive South – with the option of camping on the lake shore or finding a room in a nearby resort; or, if you are so inclined, day tripping out of Manila each morning/evening. Certain things in life: the Taal Lake Yacht Club will be happy to receive you on 20th and 21st November; and, to facilitate the fun.

Taal Lake is now on the Internet with its own webcam.

Last year we introduced you to - a free travel services website that provides real-time advertising and promotion for tourist destinations around Asia. Yesterday announced the installation of their latest IP camera (webcam) in the grounds of the Taal Lake Yacht Club, Taal Lake, Batangas.

The view from the Taal Lake webcam shows the northwest vent of Taal volcano, the one that most people assume (incorrectly) is the main crater of Taal volcano, and the volcano tours boats of the Taal Lake Yacht Club . . . ready in waiting to take tourists on volcano tours.
