Day 3 J CLASS Lionhart


Twenty-five photographs take the visitor into an evocative world where sails, the silhouettes of hulls, the rays of the sun and the froth of the waves take on new and unexpected forms. A small white boat sailing toward clouds as big as mountains, a spinnaker emerging from the darkness swollen by the wind, the silhouette of a man appearing against the light behind a colorful sail, Luna Rossa crossing the Amerigo Vespucci in the seas of New Zealand, the hull i Alinghi transported by helicopter from Switzerland to Italy: Carlo Borlenghi’s images recount the most important moments of international boating with unique vision and poetry.

Carlo Borlenghi is the world’s best-known sea and sailing photographer. Born in 1956 in Bellano on Lake Como, he began his career as a photographer by following local regattas. He has been photographing America’s Cup regattas since 1983: he was the official photographer for the Italian campaigns of Italia, Moro di Venezia and Luna Rossa and for the Swiss Team Alinghi. He has been following the boats and exploits of Giovanni Soldini since 1994. He also covered several editions of the Whitbread Round the World Race and was the official photographer for the Amer Sports team during the 2001-2002 Volvo Ocean Race. He is the official photographer of Rolex’s national and international events. In 1983 he received the “Marian Skubin” award for the best sports photography published in Italy, in 1986 he won in Paris the “Grand Prix Professional de la photo de Mer” organized by the French Chamber of Commerce, and in 2007 the “Grand Prix de l’Image Course au large Salon Nautique de Paris” 2007.
