For the second time at The Skipper Academy the boys woke up this morning at 4:00am to endure a 5 hour sail to Murter, the next destination on the route.  With a shutter speed of 12 seconds in complete darkness, I was able to capture the boys in action.

With the dancing lights, the boats look like they are being hovered over by spirits. This is hard core, perhaps something completely new for them, but they are being prepared for anything that may come their way during the summer. They are being challenged, pushed to the limit and tested.  They pulled through the 5 hour night sail because of their:

  • Focus
  • Teamwork
  • Determination
  • Curiosity

Today the skippers truly felt their passion for the sport.  Nothing can stop them now, not even a 4:00am sail with 30 knots of wind...
