About the shot

This photo was taken just as ETNZ “popped out” of a nose dive after rounding a mark during the Louis Vuitton Cup. I now find this to be a very poignant image as only Dean is visible on the boat. To me this now symbolizes how he carried the weight of the team, and his country, on his shoulders throughout the America’s Cup.
