Under the Crest

On the 20th October, the Saluting Battery, high up in the Maltese capital of Valetta, signalled the start of the 33rd Rolex Middle Sea Race. Thousands of spectators crowded the medieval bastions to watch the start of the race. Bright sunshine and a brisk south easterly breeze of 12 knots carried the yachts out of Grand Harbour. The waves were reaching 3 to 5 metres but I was there in the water metres away from the magnificent yachts documenting their way out from the harbor. A Sea&Sea housing with a large dome was used to capture the over under effect.
Location: Malta, Valletta outside the Grand Harbor
