About the shot :
Third day of racing, today on the course placed outside the numerous islands and rocks in front of Helsinki. Working up to windward solo with my (beautiful!) orange Dutch RIB, in a building breeze I started tracking crossings; with "Raven" coming up on starboard it looked like "Juanita" would have to duck - hit the gas and flew the RIB over a few waves to where I figured might be the spot for me, off the pedal, camera out - got three more boats crossing "Raven" after "Juanita", but this shot really did it for me!
