I can't remember - maybe I used photoshop velvia plugin - actually that shot was unprocessed straight out of cam - this one above is after molesting it .

rock climbing harness - pulled up by winch(EASY) - but got to hang on to the mast - cause mast swings around in sea. The cowboys didn't give me a safety line.

One time inbetween races had to Climb up like a coconut tree style cause no harness (use bow line knot around my chest) to do repairs - in rough seas, came down with Blisters inbetween my butt cheeks. OUCH.
