Extreme Sailing Series in Hamburg through the eyes of Ekaterina Zhilina


Russian photographer Ekaterina Zhilina visited 4 stage of Extreme Sailing Series and made a lot of pictures including China One and Swiss Alinghi. Alinghi may have won the race, but was beaten by Oman Air who was only 1 point behind Alinghi. This despite the fact that Morgan Larson's team had managed to crash into the wall in one of the stage races! "I don't know what happened," the skipper later explained, "We tried to take an inside position on the start line and were about to make a turn, but the boat didn't turn and we were carried away by the current. We are looking forward to the next stage of the competition, which will be held in St. Petersburg!
