Yann’s favourite pics Captions by Dongfeng Race Team OBR Yann Riou
 
An Onboard Reporter for the second time around, Yann Riou covered six of the nine legs with the red boat. A keen sailor turned professional storyteller, his pictures are wet, salty, and very realistic. Here are his five faves.

December 3rd, 2014. Leg 2 onboard Dongfeng Race Team.

"I don't like to take sunset pictures. But the sunsets we had in the Indian Ocean were very special... and so was the battle with Team Brunel, who was in sight almost everyday of the leg.”

 


 

March 23, 2015. Leg 5 onboard Dongfeng Race Team.

"Less than a minute before this picture, the deck was dry. The next wave destroyed this camera. I have lost four DSLR cameras during this Volvo Ocean Race.”


 

March 23, 2015. Leg 5 onboard Dongfeng Race Team.

"No typical long swale in the Southern Ocean this year. On this day of Leg 5, we probably got the bigger sea state of the entire race.”


 

April 1st, 2015. Leg 5 onboard Dongfeng Race Team.

"Evening in Ushuaia, under jury rig. When the race is no longer a race and becomes an adventure.”


 

May 18, 2015. Leg 7 to Lisbon onboard Dongfeng Race Team.

"Wet! Charles Caudrelier steering. We were still fighting for the overall win. This was totally unexpected at the start of the race.”
