About the shot :

A view from Ben Ainslie's perspective during one of Land Rover BAR's final training sessions in Bermuda before the 35th America's Cup. The boat hit 45 knots heading home for the day as a huge gust came in and we were unable to bear away from the channel. Due to to demanding training schedule this was my one and only chance to capture R1 at full speed on Bermuda's Great Sound. A fast, wet and exhilarating experience.
