The sailing boats departing for the "Transat Jacques Vabre" had just left the harbor. People had come to the beach to watch these magnificent boats. The winner actually crossed the Atlantic arriving in Brazil just seven days twenty two hours after this particular moment ! Photographing the sails was tempting but I did not have the proper equipment for it. These sport pictures are so spectacular that you need to be assigned and be on board a speed boat or a helicopter with a long lens to get something striking. That is why I kept the view to myself and got these people standing in the cold wind trying to catch an uninteresting photograph instead. Sometimes, you do what you can.
