It’s the toughest job in the toughest sailing race: the onboard reporter. It’s a maniacal existence for thick-skinned storytellers and galley slaves. Their subjects are the mates they must coexist with, befriend, and entrust with their life. They shoot, edit, transmit, cook, and clean. For 140 days at sea, their studio is a dank, 65-foot carbon drum. Their workday is dictated by a brutal schedule, answering to the demands of race and sponsor. They must capture all elements of raw human emotion. When things go wrong, the camera must roll. The most experienced OBR in the fleet gives us a glimpse of what’s to come in the gallery above.
