"Behind the Lens" Part 25 - Orion Express
Published 13:24 on 28 Apr 2020
This is Orion Express, the South African ILC40 and the Hong Kong yacht Hi Flyer photographed at the Corum Cup in Hong Kong in 1995.
The weather for this event had been superb, windy and sunny, but on this "Round the Island Race" it was too rough for the press boat to follow the fleet so we cut the corner to one of the rounding Islands towards the east of Clearwater Bay. As Orion Express and Hi Flyer rounded the Island a particularly large wave swept up the rock face, almost taking Orion Express with it.
Hi Flyer was Neil Pryde's boat and Orion Express was owned by Ellian Perch, I think Bruce Savage was the racing skipper.
