Photographer's Note

We were on a boat belonging to Captain Cook Cruises when we saw the sailboat skillfully navigated through Sydney's harbor. The word "tacking" or "coming about" describes the maneuver undertaken by the boat, as it turns into the wind through the 'no-go zone,' and the direction from which the wind blows changes from one side to the other. The somewhat choppy waters of the bay made it difficult to shoot a sharp photo of the sailboat with a long lense. Nonetheless, I shot half a dozen images, and this was by far the best image I was able to capture.

I will remain eternally grateful to Lisa Delpeoples and Murray Lines who gave so much of their time to show us their beloved city. This particular photo is from a Captain Cook Cruise's breakfast cruise made with Murray and his wife, Lucy.
