I have to confess that prior to this shoot I wasn’t a big fan of sailing, but a couple of days on board Unfurled has got me hooked!
With an incredible racing pedigree, this stunning yacht has won almost every race in its class and is just about as luxurious as you can get.
Port d’Antratx, Majorca was the chosen location and as we landed in Palma we were greeted with clear blue skies and the kind of heat that makes you look for the nearest place with air conditioning, but once we were togged up with factor 20 and the obligatory shooting shorts everything was fine!
Climbing up the mast isn’t exactly my idea of fun especially in a gentle swell and a 5D around your neck, but we needed to capture the detail of the deck so I managed to rig myself up in the boatswains chair and was hauled 40ft up the mast – great view from up there!
With thanks to Y.CO, Unfurled crew and the brilliant Jonny Greenall at Sloane Helicopters.
