Photographer's Note

Another shot from the Stars & Stripes '87. She's been altererd from her racing state for passenger safety these days, as evidenced by the smaller sails and the red rope to attempt to keep us in. Even so, she gives newbies a small taste of sailing in her new role. I, for one, am hooked.

The angle doesn't look all that steep to me in the picture but I was leaning overboard, clenching a rope with one hand and shooting with the other. I can still hear a friend's voice yelling for me to hang on.

Like many, I got my first glimpse of 12 metre yacht racing in the 1992 film "Wind".

============================
Unsharp mask, rotate to correct horizon (hard to get right when the boat is tilted like that) and adjusted contrast.
