Through the Lens: Paul Wyeth - Easter Challenge

The RORC Easter Challenge has been running for nearly three decades and for over 15 years, marine photographer Paul Wyeth has been capturing the action in the RORC’s season opener.  He selects a few of his favourite shots from 2010-2019.

 

The event has been a firm fixture on the RORC racing calendar for the past 27 years and the training regatta has kicked off the club’s domestic racing season since 1992. Red Funnel supported the event for over 18 years, until 2009, making it one of the longest running sponsorships with the Club. Free world-class coaching on and off the water, from grand masters like Jim Saltonstall and the expert team at North Sails is followed by post-race video debriefs. Winners are rewarded with a plethora of Easter Eggs at the end of the three-day regatta.

More about Paul Wyeth

Paul Wyeth has lived and worked by the sea all his life and is based on the Isle of Wight. Apart from a brief spell away whilst studying for a design degree, the sea has always been central to him; from teaching sailing, through to boat building and work for the RYA. His background in design combines well with hands-on experience at sea. An appreciation of light and a passion for capturing the energy and grace of the sea is his driving force.

Paul has captured many stunning images of RORC races and specialises in photographing from a small RIB allowing him to get right into the action: close but not too close! His experience in boat handling is a real asset when it comes to successfully getting the shot without getting in the way. Paul also shoots aerial images from helicopter and drones when conditions or budget allow!

Many of Paul's images have been featured in major International yachting publications, in addition to commissioned photography for a wide range of clients. He also works as event photographer for several regattas such as Cowes Week and Antigua Sailing Week.

Royal Ocean Racing Club - since 1925

The RORC was founded in 1925 to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined. Today the club encourages ocean, long distance and other forms of yacht racing and yachting activity.
