Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 10 years ago

Couldn't be any better occasion than today to publish my opening post of my first ever blog, when i'm just about to "celebrate" my 10th year in the yachting photography industry..!!

Yes, it all started during the 2009 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, hosted and perfectly organised by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in the unparalleled sea and landscapes of Porto Cervo and the Arcipelago La Maddalena, where i found myself almost by chance, for i want there primarily to accompany my good friend and country fellow Stefano Gerardi, who had been assigned as a bowman on one of the most spectacular superyachts ever seen, that is the 148 footer Wally "Saudade", which was at that time the latest masterpiece designed by Bill Tripp.

I had been a pro photographer for many years already, but although i had never took a single frame to any boat so far, as soon as i stepped onto the docks of the Porto Cervo Marina straight from the ferry moored in Olbia, i felt something growing in me, and it was not only the peppers salad, still alive after the night passage from Genoa, but i can clearly remember a feeling, a pleasing sensation like.... wow... this is AMAZING...!!! 

Well, to make a long story short still i walk on those docks a few weeks every year, and many others around the world, for yachting photography has become my main occupation.

Here is a collection of photos from that race, including those which i was so lucky to take onboard the beautiful Saudade, invited by her owners, Mr. Büll and his wife, and where i found another friend of mine, the polish sailing legend Karol Jablonski.

All photos were taken using a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and various lenses, like the 16-35mm f/2.8, the 70-200mm f/2.8 and the 300mm f/2.8
