Shamrok V Spinnaker Reflection

J Class sailing yacht Shamrock V sailing in the bay of Saint Tropez
After an intense day out on the racecourse during the 2012 Voles de Saint Tropez, we were heading towards the harbor.

The sea flattened and the wind dropped, we passed by to leeward of Shamrock V on of the few J Class yachts. I saw the reflection of the spinnaker on the flat water. We stopped our boat and at the moment I pressed the shutter on my camera I know this is one of kind photo.

Shamrock V was the first British yacht to be built to the new J-Class rule. She was commissioned by Sir Thomas Lipton for his fifth America’s Cup challenge.
