About the shot :

A battalion of white sails rake the coal-black squall above, illustrating how the J/70 has literally taken sailing ‘by storm.’ Since its introduction in 2012, this 22.5-foot sport boat has attracted some of the world’s top yacht racing talent to a class that already boasts more than 600 hulls, and counting. Moments after this image was captured, the squall hit the fleet.
