Sailing America is a vivid view of sailing in the United States by Onne van der Wal, an award-winning nautical photographer and author whose photographs have graced the covers of every major sailing magazine in the United States and abroad. A seasoned yacht racer himself, he won the Whitbread Round the World Race and still tours with teams both as sailor and photographer. A longtime friend of Steve and Doris Colgate, Onne raced aboard the Colgates’ 54′ Frers designed Sleuth in the late ’70’s and early 80’s. “I love this book,” says Steve. “Onne has the unique ability to place himself in absolutely perfect spots to capture unique images. He is a true artist.”

About Sailing America

The introduction to this 308-page book with 200 color photographs, is by Gary Jobson, an America’s Cup-winning tactician. Gary has authored twenty books on sailing, produced more than 1,200 television shows for ESPN, currently serves on the board of World Sailing, and is a past president of US Sailing. Published by Rizzoli New York, Sailing America is all about sailing – about grand prix racing yachts, cruising boats and everything in between — from dinghy racing around Newport, R.I., to high tech maxi boats competing in Key West;  from peaceful cruising excursions around the islands of Hawaii to high latitude expedition sailing in the frozen waters of Alaska and wooden schooners reaching along the rocky coasts of the Pacific Northwest.
