PHOTOSEQUENCE The bowman swallowed by the waves.

imageBowmen often complain of being undervalued in crew hierarchies. Rather, of being precisely “enslaved” by wicked coxswains and tacticians, unaccustomed to dirty work. Probably also in this case, documented by this mind-blowing photo sequence, someone must have ordered the bowman to go and check the jib attachment point on the forestay. And that someone, comfortably in the cockpit, must have underestimated the formed wave. Bowmen of the world unite and rebel! Send the helmsmen to do the dirty work!
