About the shot :

During the Challenge Day at les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, Lionel Péan took his crew and sponsors guests for a "just for fun" sailing moment in strong wind and large waves outside of Saint-Tropez gulf. Amateur on board reporter Augustin Vandenhove position himself to take a photo of those enjoyable sailing conditions. The boat is a VOR 70, ex Puma Mostro, that was purchased this year by SFS (french insurance company) to replace its previous boat (another VOR 70, ex Abu Dhabi) destroyed by a fire while in the yard. The boat is sailing in all the classic races in the Med. By the way, it was the first time that the helicopter pilot made yacht photography and the video was very cautious and soft in his machine movementsand seemd to liked that very much!...
