Overview

From the eye of a world-class sailor through the lens of a world-class photographer, this grand-scale book takes the reader on a voyage around the world, capturing the joy, excitement, and serenity of sailing. As a professional sailor, Onne van der Wal has skippered boats of many kinds, raced yachts in every climate, and crossed the Atlantic more than ten times. When Olympus Cameras gave him a camera to document his Dutch team’s Whitbread Round the World Race in 1981, he discovered his second passion: photography. Over a lifetime devoted to sailing, van der Wal has accrued an unparalleled archive of the most evocative and beautiful photography of the pursuit in all its varied forms, from classic yacht racing 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. No other photographer has the experience to shoot so well on board a speeding yacht or the confidence to scale a mast for the right panoramic view; and no other sailor has captured the extremes of the excitement, competition, peace, and mystery the sport affords. This lavishly illustrated volume—with nearly 200 color photographs and several gatefolds of 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…the images presented in Sailing show a range of emotion and acts as a love letter to the sea…this volume would be great for anyone interested in sailing…” ~JustLuxe.com

“I appreciate the size of the book and the breadth of the photos. It allows you to gaze as long as you want and let the photos do the talking. While you probably don’t want to carry this book with you just anywhere, because of its sheer size, that ultimately means its purpose will be fulfilled. When you’re at home, away from the water and waves, you’ll be able to open this book up and let the photos tell a story. They have a lot to say.” ~Sailing World

“…drop-dead-gorgeous images. Sailing is a meticulous record of the journey that followed, from searing tropical islands to the ice high latitudes. It’s a colorful take that’s lavishly told.” ~Crusing World

"Most of us won't be able to see all of these places, but Sailing gives us a taste of what it might be like." ~Boat U.S Magazine

Sailing is an exceptional choice for the luckiest person on your list. Onne van der Wal’s stunning, oversized photo book captures 200 vibrant color photos...from one end of the globe to the other.” ~Practical Sailor

“Sailing is a gorgeous paean to the sport and art of sailing. This is a feast for the eyes for lovers of photography and, of course, sailing.” ~The Orlando Sentinel

“Sailing is a gorgeous paean to the sport and art of sailing. Whether in heat or snow, whether at the top of the mast or an end of a pole, the camera was van der Wal’s constant companion, and this book is the result.” ~Baltimore Sun
 
“In this breathtaking volume, Van der Wal captures the essence of the pastime through some 200 images taken around the world. This is one book that is guaranteed to get both you and your sailing friends revved up for the upcoming season.” ~Sail Magazine

“If the rich images in this book don’t inspire a sailing adventure, they will at the very least whisk the reader away to a maritime daydream.” ~Rangefinder

“…alone with the images of sea and sky and boats and coastlines…a cure for almost everything, except, of course being on your own boat.” ~MaineHarbors
