I seriously doubt that the photo was the result of wide angle distortion, as the backstay and the forestay and other major lines through the photograph are not distorted. A wide-angle lens would distort ALL of the lines and the distortion, usually barrel distortion, is generally greater at the outer edges than in the center as any good photographer would realize.

Here is an extreme example of wide-angle distortion:

Giulietta, that is an fantastic photo up a mast.. was that bent as far during the sail, or was the view compounded by a wide angle lens.?? either way, awesome shot..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

As noted: That's not rake, that's bend.

For any boat: No. For some boats: Yes. I commonly see fractionally-rigged race boats with even more bend. (I think. It's hard to tell from your picture--at that angle.)

One of the best examples is how J24 sails have changed over the last 30 years the current fast setup uses a straight mast with the main cut for no prebend


They also make completly different J24 sails for the east and west coast Or light air Vs heavy



We also have many large Cats here and if you just look at the mast the rake is huge compared to monohulls

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

It seems clear that the OP noticed what he thought was an unusual amount of bend in the mast and took the picture to illustrate his point.

The picture is pretty accurate. I took it my self with a point and shoot. I took it because I was surprised by the mast bend. It was a production boat too not a racing machine.
