About the shot :

The morning after Richard is a retired doctor from the UK. He just spent a hellish night in the Tasman sea during the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race onboard the Clipper 70 Switzerland. Two successive low pressure systems hit the boat, the wind got stronger and stronger, hitting 60 knots, and all the crew are exhausted. Yet, the day after Richard is on deck, tired but happy, enjoying the adventure of a lifetime. And his face speaks volumes…
