The sailors (Matteo Iachino, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, Antoine Questel, Delphine Cousin, Tristan Algret, Sarah-Quita Offringa and Sebastian Koerdel) were set to depart at 7 a.m. from our hotel and then take two RIBs loaded with all the equipment 20km offshore out to an island called Amedee. Meanwhile I would relax at the hotel, enjoy a leisurely breakfast and then wait for a taxi to whisk me to the local airport where I would fly out by helicopter to this tropical paradise and shoot the windsurfing for 1.5 hours before being dropped ashore and joining the party to explore the lagoon for the rest of the day in the RIBs. Oh wow! There was a spare seat in the chopper going vacant as no video shooting was taking place, so I decided to bring along Jamie Gibbs as a backup photographer just in case I forgot to load any memory cards! It almost sounded too good to be true! I spent the rest of the day meticulously charging batteries, formatting cards and checking lenses over as I really did not want any room for error on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
