The closest you can get on land to the sensation of being on deck–crusing during the eyes of a real grasp of each sail and lens.

This deluxe, grand-scale, restricted-model e book is a voyage throughout The us, shooting the enjoyment, pleasure, and serenity of cruising within the waters of each area of the USA–from Puerto Rico to the end of Alaska.

Over an entire life dedicated to boats and the pursuit of delight on water, the photographer Onne van der Wal has collected an extraordinary archive of essentially the most evocative and lovely pictures of this Nice American recreation. Arranged via area, and together with festival yachts, recreational crafts, and the whole thing in among, the e book gifts shocking vignettes of each type of American crusing–from vintage yacht racing round Newport, Rhode Island to stunning schooners drifting across the Nice Lakes, and from non violent catamaran expeditions across the islands of Hawaii to hand-crafted unmarried-masters within the frozen waters of Alaska and excessive Grand Prix races alongside the rocky coasts of the Pacific Northwest.

With 200 colour images and a number of gatefolds that spread into superb panoramic pictures, this can be a birthday celebration of the nautical way of life and a love letter to an archetypal American pursuit that may be so a lot more than a hobby for all the ones fortunate sufficient to experience it.
