Very cool look at the efforts behind the lens in putting together
state of the art video and stills for the new IMOCA, Acciona which will participate
in the 2012 Vendee Globe.

"The yacht, named Acciona 100% Eco-Powered is the first IMOCA 60 zero emissions ocean racing yacht, which is to say she will be racing the Vendee Globe without fossil fuels (diesel typically) of any kind aboard. Where an IMOCA 60 would normally have a diesel engine for auxiliary drive and power generation this has been designed out and replaced by an electric motor and batteries charged by a system of solar, wind and hydro-generators."
