Photo: Gwidon Libera The 2022 Polish DN Championship in Lithuania.

The ‘Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image’ is a yearly photographic contest and exhibition. It seeks to recognise the very best yacht racing image taken during the year, that best represents the essence and excitement of yacht racing as a sport.

Polish photographer Gwidon Libera’s DN photos have been featured many times on this website, the DN newsletter Runner Tracks, and the Yearbook. 2022 IDNIYRA World Champion Robert Graczyk P31 chose Gwidon’s photo for the cover of the 2023 IDNIYRA Yearbook. Gwidon’s photo, a dramatic capture of a mast failure from the 2021 Polish Championship, was an entry for the 2022 Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image of the year. 

Though not the winning shot, it’s the number one photo among the DN community. Our photographers help tell the story of this sport. Thank you, Gwidon and all other photographers, for sharing your work with us over the years.
