This guy was a crewman on one of the yachts competing in the Three Peaks Race 2012,
He had not been crewing on a yacht before and was a bit shaken and excited by his experience.
What had happened was a gale blew up with winds of up to seventy knots. A couple of yachts had run aground and only about half the fleet was able to get into Lady Barron.
I can imagine how exciting it is to be on a yacht at night in a storm for my first yachting experience.
IN this picture he is taking a photo of the water which was still steaming from the wind. The wind was still around fifty knots.
One thing I found was the sea spray made my lens nearly opaque in only a few seconds. Though I think that helped this picture.
