About the shot :

This photo comes from a training report of Armel Le Cleac'h a week before the capsizing of the trimaran off the coast of Morocco. More than 40 knots in ideal conditions for photo, sea formed, wind and light. I chose this photo for the strength that emerges these monsters skippered by a single man.
