Im always glad when after a shoot the client gets cover pages in the magazines…
This may means that the job has been well done : )
Below is the cover of the American Magazine Cruising World / July issue.
There's an article inside about the same boat and there should be more pics but I haven't seen the mag yet…

FYI this shot was done las Feb. in the Bahamas.
Of course shot from an helicopter with the Pentax 645Z : )

We are all so proud of you and Romain. I presume you had video too. It must be crampyvand a cause for all sorts of aches getting such shots from a tiny dragonfly of a helicopter!

Bravo!

Congrats ! The cover a magazine is always an achievement ! :)
I like this one very much !



Antonio and Nicolas,

The entire process of making boats, from drawing to such a great picture is mesmerizing! Such a lot of creativity and experience fitted into a small floating space that folk can enjoy for many years.

This picture sums up all that careful endeavor and love packed into a boat and then one superb happy vibrant picture like this.

Thank You Antonio and Asher.

Are there two more spinnakers?I'd love yo see this at full sail too from the side!

In the pictures of the launch of this boat, the foresail was white! Why the change. Is this a different technology and handling or just prettier?

Hi Asher
I don't know which sails you saw, it might a 'genaker' or a 'code 0'…
Generally spinnakers are made of colorful fabric, but they also can be white!

You may see more foresail on a sister ship that I shot earlier this year in Palma de Majorca :
Here

Foresails are of different shape, surface, fabric depending of their use determined by the wind strength and direction, no cosmetic there, but efficiency…
