Actually, this image is from a vessel engaged in a similar extreme activity. This is a night time scene aboard the double-handed, 40-foot Beluga Racer, one of the race boats competing in the Portimao Global Ocean Race. The racers are currently in the South Atlantic off the Brazilian coast, with Beluga Racer in the lead as they turn for Cape Town.
