With lush photography, this grand-scale book takes you on a voyage across oceans all over the world, capturing the joy, excitement, and serenity of sailing. Few sports inspire such passion as sailing. For many, the thrill of setting sail and catching the wind, whether to cruise a bay or race around the world, is a sublime experience that is as much about being in the moment with wind and water as it is about being part of a tradition of freedom and exploration that goes back millennia. Over a lifetime devoted to sailing, boats, and the pursuit of pleasure on water, the photographer Onne van der Wal has accrued an unparalleled archive of the most evocative and beautiful photography of the sport in all its varied forms–from classic yachtracing around Newport, R.I. to beautiful schooners drifting outside St. Tropez, and from peaceful catamaran expeditions through the silent Antarctic to intense Grand Prix races around the coast of Australia. This lavishly illustrated volume–with nearly 200 color photographs and several gatefolds that unfold into glorious panoramic images–is a celebration of the nautical lifestyle, and a love letter to a pursuit that is so much more than a pastime for all those lucky enough to enjoy it.
