About the shot :

The 9 day event was coming to an end with rain pouring down and flooding hampering much of the area. I thought it best to try and capture something a little different in the dark, bleak and squally conditions. The bottom reach was very tight for the asymmetric boats who were often on the edge. I love this picture for the way the spray can be seen flying into the crew (Joe) who is hanging on, arm extended, willing the boat to make the next mark.
