About the shot :

Transat Jacques Vabre 2017. While we were waiting to get out of the harbor before (because the competitors were leaving the port) the conditions were announced very muscular with a very formed sea. All the boats came out with a reef in the mainsail. The rising sea and the waves crashing on the dike were bigger and bigger. A Navy helicopter flew over the exit of the harbor at the exit of the imoca Bastide Otio. At that moment a very large wave crashed on the dike.
