Sail Change

By toms  
Changing headsails as the wind picks up during the Clipper 05-06 Round the World Yacht Race.

This shot is taken from just behind the mast looking forward to the foredeck on the 68 foot yacht. There are three people and a leg in the photo. The yacht was well heeled over at the time and those waves are rather wet.

super shot - I'm amazed there is no spray on the lens and that you risked using your camera in this situation. Looks a very flash boat as well. You really captured the feeling of sailing in strong winds and you got the angle perfectly.
