About the shot :

It was a day with lots of dangerous wind gusts. I saw the wind was increasing again on the lake and I chose position with my RIB behind this ship. And when the wind gust struck, it almost tumbled! The ship almost stopped for a few seconds leaning severely. But due to the experienced skipper and his crew the ship raised again and continued the race!
