It's a Friday afternoon in Miami in late February, and Keith Brash talks on his phone as he leans against a stainless steel counter in a 40-foot shipping container temporarily deposited in the parking lot behind Monty's on South Beach. While the shore team of Quantum Racing's TP52 is ticking off boxes on its work list, so too is Brash. He's scheming his next hit, contemplating how he's going to capture the day's practice session in some new and clever way. He has an arsenal at his disposal: multiple cameras, both still and video, an array of lenses, housings, drones, and dozens of rechargeable batteries.
"My life is like being a mercenary, a gun for hire," says Brash, a South African native who's on his seventh tour with Quantum Racing as its media producer. "I go where the show goes." On this day, the "show" is the Miami stop on the TP52 Super Series where we caught up with grand-prix sailing's most creative crewmember, whose job description is to simply make the sport, and the sailors, look awesome.
