As one of the official Rolex event photographers, Carlo Borlenghi works at some pretty sweet events. Here he rides a helicopter to shoot Esimit Europa as the first boat arriving at the Giraglia Rock during the Giraglia Rolex Cup. The 2011 Giraglia Rolex Cup comprises a series of inshore races in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, followed by a 245nm offshore race via La Giraglia islet off Corsica to Genova in Italy.
