About the shot :

Crossing the Gulf Stream, with is trademark confused seas born of an average about three knots of current, plus an added big breeze, is one of sailing's great tests. For the crew of the Volvo 70 Wizard, rampaging their way to Jamaica in the Pineapple Cup (811 Nautical Miles), it's a three-sail blast reach one copious amounts of water over the deck. Keeping the bow up for some meager measure of visibility, means all hands aft of the grinders.
