Last weekend there was wind of a different kind with the second round of the F1 Powerboat World Championships raced in La Rochelle Harbour.

Fletcher comments 'I live in La Rochelle and normally photograph windsurfing events as the sport is very popular here, the world champion Antoine Albeau lives just a few kilometers away and sometimes sails with us. The second round of the F1 world powerboat championiships held at La Rochelle was a real spectacle, local hero Philippe Dessertenne gave the town someone to cheer for and I got an unmissable photo opportunity!'
