About the shot :

Reflecting on the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact, I chose this image because it exemplifies what yacht sailing is all about, the push through adversity with a determination to overcome. On one side, there’s significant motion and movement engaged with wind, wave, and water alongside the juxtaposition of the calm with captain and crew.
