The owner of the famous 12 Metre International Formula racing yacht and America’s Cup veteran, Gretel II kindly permitted me to make some images on board her, during the 2011 Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania.
Camera: Rolleicord Va twin lens reflex
Lens: Schneider Xenar 75mm f/3.5
Film: Fuji Acros 100 silver halide black and white negative developed in Ilford ID-11.
A tripod was employed for this image, and it worked quite well as, although the yacht bobbed gently in the water, the tripod remained stationery relative to the deck.
