Fill your sails
World-class yachting photographer Sharon Green has culled 250 from a half-million of her images to showcase them in Sharon Green’s 30 Years of Ultimate Sailing (Windward Productions, $60). This 200-page coffee table book features dramatic racing action from the 1980s through today, including Oracle Team USA’s thrilling America’s Cup comeback victory last year. The book is accented with essays by some of the sport’s top sailors, including John Bertrand, Paul Cayard, Stan Honey, John Kilroy, Buddy Melges, Ken Read and reigning Cup champ Jimmy Spithill. Many of the images have appeared in Green’s annual Ultimate Sailing calendars, but others have never been published.
