Photo of the Year award for Thierry Martinez's flying sailors image

Congratulations to my friend Thierry Martinez, photographer extraordinaire. Thierry was award the ‘Photo of the Year’ prize at the World Yacht Racing Forum in Portugal last week.

This is his winning shot. It was taking during a layday at the Puma Moth Worlds in Dubai earlier this year when Thierry persuaded world champion Si Payne and fellow Moth sailor Bora Gulari to do some athletic hiking. It looks like they are walking on water as their Moths fly over the waves.
