30 Years Of Ultimate Sailing


The stunning new coffee table book, 30 Years Of Ultimate Sailing, is a must-have for every sailor and yacht racing enthusiast. There has never been a book so thoroughly engaging, with 224 pages of thrilling starts, frenzied mark-roundings, triumphant finishes and exhilarating conditions at some of the world's greatest regattas, raced by some of the most famous sailors.

Globally heralded yachting photographer, Sharon Green, beautifully depicts more than three decades of images from the yachting campaigns of sailing greats like John Thomson, Jon Kilroy, Philippe Kahn, and the late Roy Disney, along with images from eight America's Cup regattas. 30 Years Of Ultimate Sailing features hundreds of images in Green's inimitable style: a signature use of color, light, action and perspective that brings the viewer into the heart of the fray, to fully experience the passion, bustle, and beauty of yacht racing.

Hard bound in a large 11.5"x 10.5" format, Green's brilliant images are brought to life by the inspirational words of an elite and accomplished group of industry leaders and sailing legends including: John Bertrand, Paul Cayard, Betsy Crowfoot, Annie Gardner, Lars Grael, Robert Grant, Stan Honey, Philippe Kahn, John Kilroy, Jerry Kirby, Tom Leweck, Buddy Melges, Martha Parker, Ken Read, Jimmy Spithill and John Thomson.

'Shooting to thrill', Green follows a no-holds-barred approach to her photography; dangling from helicopters, or knee-deep in brine on speeding chase boats. "My favorite conditions are fresh-to-frightening," Green admits - and her images prove it. There is equally as much to read as to there is to visually experience in this unprecedented collector's book that truly captures the beauty, drama and intensity of sailboat racing from 1979 to 2014. 224-pages.
