I like the combination of the boats racing in front of Alcatraz and the zoomed in frontal view of the cat in the spray of the waves.

For smaller racing dinghies, i try the same: focus on the athlete, the lower part of the mast and the spray of the bow wave.  This emphasizes the speed.  I use the OMD and the 45mm and try to get real close with the coach boat - not an option at the AC.

The speeds at the AC72's are insane and the amount of money  involved is way over the top.  I prefer the normal one design dinghies and cats, that are already extremely fast and athletic to sail compared to a 40 ft Yacht.
