Location :

Bay of Islands

About the shot :

Jim Farmer's TP52 Georgia. Whilst waiting for the start of racing on day one of Bay of Islands Sailing week the fleet were kept entertained by a pod of playful dolphins. Having seen them playing around Jims boat (and knowing how difficult is is to capture dolphins) I kept the camera up and tracked the boat hoping that they may show themselves. I couldn't have been more pleased when not one but three lept into the air just off the bow of Georgia. It shows both the beauty of nature in New Zealand's Bay of Islands along with a very neat TP52 which had such names as Brad Butterworth and Chris Steele onboard at the time.
