Overview

This is Rick Tomlinson's thoughtful and exciting account of his day to day life as a photographer, told through his wonderfully dramatic photography.

Rick Tomlinson is probably the best known name in marine photography and his action photos of all manner of sailing scenes are in evidence all over the world. This new edition, with many new photographs, tells the story of Rick's journey - from raw Whitbread crewman to National Geographic photographer. It is the most comprehensive collection yet gathered of his photographs, across all spheres of his work. Sailboat racing inshore and offshore, from the Caribbean to the high latitudes of the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic; monohulls and multihulls, dinghies, Maxis, lifeboats and superyachts plus America's Cup photos too. Alongside the stunning photographs are many great stories, written with the help of long-time collaborator, Mark Chisnell.

'His eye for the nature of the sea is what brings a sense of life to all Tomlinson's work' Classic Boat

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"On the grounds that a treat shared is a treat enriched, the photographs in this book should be devoured by lovers of yachts and yachting two-at-a-time for nudgings, whoops, hoots and huzzas. This, the second edition of the work, will likely glue them enraptured to the nearest coffee table."—Nautical Magazine "A book to thrill, from the safety of the armchair rather than the bosun's chair!"—The Lifeboat
