Onne van der Wal was born in Holland and lived much of his childhood in South Africa. His marine photographs have won countless awards and have graced the covers of every major sailing magazine and catalog, including Travel and Leisure, Sail, Yachting World, Sailing, Patagonia, and Team One. A seasoned yacht racer, van der Wal won the Whitbread Around the Word Race and set a circumnavigation record that stood for 4 years. He owns a gallery where he exhibits his work and has published numerous posters and calendars. He lives in Newport, Rhode Island.
An award-winning nautical photographer and former yacht racer portrays the power of the ocean and the blowing wind in 114 awe-inspiring images. In one shot, the star-studded sail of America’s Cup champ Endeavour unfurls beautifully over the sea. In another, a Swan 77 "slams into a wave off Beavertail, Jamestown, Rhode Island." Van der Wal also captures homey behind-the-scenes details, such as yellow raingear-clad sailors doing maintenance work on a schooner. And not all the images are of racing boats—among the highlights are shots of a rustic fishing boat beached in Chile and a hand-built Kayuka. The author’s respect for maritime history and tradition is evident, and his photos pay homage to the passions of boat-lovers around the world.
