We just received the book, Walking on Water and it is a spectacular collection of sailing photographs and accompanying stories that aren’t too likely to be produced again, including this photo above. Did you know that Dennis Conner was helming whilst she was up the mast? As a joke he called for a gybe on the radio mic while she was up there. Funny. The shot is  during a race at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo. Adela was doing a steady 16 knots at the time.

From the publisher: Digital has now changed the photographic world for good and bad. Having had most of my career in the non-digital world there is no Photoshop involved. Although I have had many comments to say was itPphotoshopped, and why did I not use a remote camera but instead risk diving under boats and up the masts. At that point there wasn’t  the equipment of today. And it reflects a time and perhaps a spirit that is moving back in history.

Take a look. It might be a terrific christmas gift for that someone special…
