Dotted by a 7,600 km coastline, 20 majestic rivers and over 120 lakes, India is as perfect for water sport. That is why NEXA P1 Powerboat kick-starts in Mumbai!
To see the event was possible from avery high building in Marine Drive road. The floating pier was simply organised from the send beach, 6000 buoys were placed on water to make a race course. International team members were melting under hot Mumbai’s sun, but the crowd on shore will wait hours to see powerboats passing by. I would say rushing by))) This small boats can move very fast, as they are super light and specially designed for maximum performance on water.
To capture them was not an easy task, as good access to the course was only for official photographer. I needed to be creative. My best shots actually were done when the rest on photographers gave up and complained, that we are too far. So the lesson of the event- never give up and you will get you moment!
I also got my moment on price giving ceremony. It was too many of us doing the same clicks from the same angles. So I gave my phone to the winning team and they made a selfie with the trophy. Exactly that picture was published)
Tis is what I got.
