Mine’s big­ger

Yachting World - - Front Page -

You can bet the skip­per of this small fish­ing boat couldn’t be­lieve his eyes when the Baltic 115 Nikata stole up from astern dur­ing the Rolex Fast­net Race in Au­gust. The su­pery­acht, re­plete with a rock­star crew in­clud­ing Amer­ica’s Cup win­ning skip­per Peter Burl­ing, was work­ing its way up­wind close to the coast of Corn­wall when it over­hauled the lit­tle fish­ing boat out of Pen­zance.

The meet­ing was all the more bizarre when you con­sider that pho­tog­ra­pher, Carlo Bor­lenghi, was at that mo­ment right over­head in a lowfly­ing he­li­copter.
