About the shot :

Drama is certainly present in sailing, but usually not visible. The personal drama of the sailor is clearly visible in this photo. This would be his World Championship, with one race to go and first overall. He would be the World Champion 2017, until the moment he capsize and all his dreams were destroyed.
