About the shot :

The New generation of Imoca is reaches a new level! The boats are really fast, easily reaching around 30knts ! But impact is rough ! To me, this image conveys the emotion of the skipper who is about to get slammed by a heavy wave crashing over the deck. It also demonstrates the impressive power of these boats!
