In 1981 I joined the Dutch yacht Flyer as a crew member to race in the Whitbread round the World race. My position on board was engineer, bowman and camera man. My position as camera man was added later on once the owner of the boat Conny van Rietschoten felt I would do a decent job taking pictures and using the Bolex 16mm film camera. This film was put together by Colin Forbes and my contribution was the onboard footage. All the other clips were from other sources. We went on to win the race on handicap and line honors and set a new circumnavigation record that stood for 4 years.
