I have appreciated your service and attention to detail. I chose your website because you specialise in sailing photography.
I have just shown the print to my husband as a surprise. He loves it. As a keen sailor himself, he asks (if possible) ‘when was the photo taken?’ I believe it was taken at Cowes..? Any further information would add to his enjoyment of it.
Again many thanks,
“The picture was taken during the 2010 Panerai British Classic Yacht Regatta held in the Solent off Cowes, Isle of Wight. I was in a RIB positioned to capture the yachts shortly after they left the start off the Royal Yacht Squadron, as they headed to the first windward mark. The choppy Solent and strong tides always promise interesting racing, and this race was no different. The 8 Metre class yachts, always so beautiful, together with the light, clouds and wind strength were great; add in the backlit sails against the showery sky made for a great picture opportunity. Bouncing around in the RIB adds to the difficulty in taking the shots, but at the end of the day #ItsAllAboutTheLight!” Ian
