Since there are so many photos I thought I upload you a raw video snipped of the race as well. I will do a complete video too, but this if for a later ime :)
And so the race went on!
This cloud in the background make this a spectacular shoot!
Let's zoom into this photo a bit more, since this is a panorama anyway!
If you sail with way to much sail in a controlled manner you just can grin!
The KNRM - the Dutch rescue coast guard was busy in the field as well... Nothing shall go wrong. Its good to have these guys around.
Sailing ship Avontuur - this boat is not only extremely good looking, it is fast as well... we were overtaken :'(
The Mare marieke looked very nice on this day. In 4 years I never saw the boat with full sails up!
Michael, the skipper was still fully focused.
Almost at the finish line :)
So I had some time to do more portrait photos.
A good look over the bow.
The others still hunting us.
Noa had some time to chill since we were over the finish line :)
All in all: A insanely nice event for sailors. The forces, the wind, the water, the boats, the people - just spectacular and awesome. The only stupid thing was that my girlfriend could not attend due to work... grks! I will try to attend this next year again.
Oh and we placed 15th or something like this (it did not matter at all to us)
