About the shot :

2013, March 31. French West Indies, island of St. Barth. Cloudy day, sea force five / six, up to 25 knots of wind and rain squalls. ‘Wrong way around the island' course (clockwise), five J Class yachts on the line of a downwind start. A spectacular splash on the bow of Ranger (J 5), frozen by a shutter speed of a 1/1250 of a second, while she is riding the big swells and rounding the top of the island.
