About the shot :

I like this picture for its simplicity, clean lines and high contrast. Mid afternoon in early August, a large storm cell rolled onto the 49er Canadian National Championship race course hosted by the Kingston Yacht Club. Brothers William (skipper) and Samuel (crew) Bonin were on the second upwind, fetching the windward mark, attempting to finish the race before the impending squall.
