Sailing America

$100.00

Sailing America by Onne van der Wal.

Over a lifetime devoted to 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 this great American sport. Organized by region, and including competition yachts, leisure crafts, and everything in between, the book presents stunning vignettes of every form of American sailing--from classic yacht racing around Newport, Rhode Island to beautiful schooners drifting across the Great Lakes, and from peaceful catamaran expeditions around the islands of Hawaii to handmade single-masters in the frozen waters of Alaska and intense Grand Prix races along the rocky coasts of the Pacific Northwest.

With 200 color photographs and several gatefolds that unfold into glorious panoramic images, this is a celebration of the nautical lifestyle and a love letter to an archetypal American pursuit that is so much more than a pastime for all those lucky enough to enjoy it.
