Hamilton, Bermuda
J Class boats compete in a regatta between race days of the America's Cup finals in Hamilton, Bermuda, June 19, 2017. Mike Segar: "This image is of two J Class racing yachts on opposing tacks during prestart manoeuvres at a regatta during the 2017 Americas Cup. Nowadays the Americas Cup is sailed in catamarans with a crew of six that race at nearly 50 knots but between 1914 and 1937 it was fought in J Class racing yachts. These majestic yachts of yesteryear have enjoyed a renaissance as wealthy owners restore old boats and build new replicas. The regatta allowed accredited photographers the rare opportunity to document these historic yachts up close from a small fleet of "chase boats" over two days. This was a great opportunity for me to create a compelling series of graceful and more classic sailing images for Reuters as opposed to the high-speed action of the Americas Cup. Early in the morning the photographers travelled in the small chase boats several miles from Hamilton Harbor to the racecourse off St Georges, Bermuda. The largest ever gathering of these majestic yachts - seven in all, sailing close together - was a mesmerising sight. But translating that into compelling and graphically interesting 35mm images requires thought and experience. The simplicity of a boat in the water may look cool, but is it a strong photograph that stops a reader's eye? As the boats prepared to start, they sailed back and forth in close proximity. As boats crossed tacks with crew at the tip of the bow, this image, shot with a 400mm lens just came together perfectly. The shapes and symmetry make the image instantly compelling. Sailing photography often involves shooting many many images to get a few good ones. Most are failures but this one when I saw it, I knew was a "keeper"."
