"Here they come"

From Clips

On the third day the Vega was in the exclusion zone, Anna says there wasn't much wind for the yacht to make much way. Three French vessels had been manoeuvring around slowly closing in, before a group of commandos armed with batons boarded a Zodiac and heading towards the boat. Anna says the moment the French boarded the Vega, everything seemed to go into a kind of slow-motion. "I'd never really used a camera much before and forced myself to stay detached - 'take aim, press the button, wind on, take a breath' I told myself."
