Photographer's Note

A windy sunny afternoon in Vasiliki, perfect sail conditions.
I don't know who this sailor is, but he was getting a move on. The sail you can see is twisting out at the top, this shows that the whole rig is under a lot of pressure. The twist in the sail is there by design to help control the force of the wind, just letting enough wind out of the sail to enable the sailor to have and keep control in the stronger gusts of wind. As the wind speed increases the more the sail will twist out, until the forces at work over power the sail and the rider and dump the whole lot in the sea. Splash, Big splash.
