About the shot :
Land Rover BAR Flying High in Fukuoka: This image was taken in during Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Fukuoka, Japan. Land Rover BAR team skippered by Ben Ainslie won the 2015-16 World Series with a stunning final day performance and a race to spare. I selected this image as it is a good example of extreme sailing photography which demonstrates, in close up, the power of the foiling AC Cats and handling skills of the British Team.
