About the shot :

Six J Class Yachts competed in St Barth this year. I have been shooting J Class Yachts for years, but in this picture I got the precise moment that shows the power of these gigantic yachts including the fascination of the Crew members lying on deck sailing their wet and sportive huge race machine and looking to our chase boat, which is only 150 m away in appr 20kn of wind and big waves in this area.

Camera :

Nikon D 5, 300 mm, 320, f3.5 , 1/2000
