America's Cup

Location :

San Francisco

About the shot :

This was the next to last race of the 2013 America's Cup which set up the dramatic final race which was won by Oracle who took home the Cup. I chose it because it shows how tight and dramatic this competition was and how the unique setting of the San Francisco Bay was, where some people even went to Alcatraz, in the middle of the Bay, to have a different and up-close view of the race.
