34th America's Cup

Location :

San Francisco, USA

About the shot :

ORACLE Team USA crossed the finish line after the 17th race and made a sharp left turn. I was standing on the photo boat, ready with my Canon 700 mm (EF 500mm F:4 plus 1.4 extender) lens. The cat shot passed us and I got Roman Kirby, the only US crew and the youngest, celebrating the victory with his crew. It was my 12th America’s Cup event I covered since 1977.
