Windsurfing on the freighter waves

Poor windsurfers. Right in the middle of one of the races for the RSX Windsurfing Championship this giant cargo freighter comes barrelling through the shipping lanes. Hopefully the waves gave them that extra little boost of speed and didn't swamp them and weaken them for the patient sharks.
