Tall Ships 2006 Calendar
Reviewer: Alistair Gillanders
This book offers a unique and close to encyclopeadic collection of pictures and details of the currently sailing tall ships around the world. Having sailed on a few and seen many more whilst sailing in both Europe and the UK I found pretty well all of them in here.
Thad is a reknowned photographer of the tall ships and has been for many years. This collection brings all of that together in one place with the usual quality and understanding of his subject matter that you would expect.
I was particularly fortunate to meet the author and get a signed copy during The Tall Ships Race 2000...and no it is not for sale!:-)

Sparkman & Stephens: Classic Modern Yachts (Hardcover) by Franco Pace
Review
Sparkman & Stephens: Classic Modern Yachts, glories in the beauty of their classic boats and their racing successes. Some of Sparkman & Stephens best and most successful designs are presented in superb color photographs. The book has enough gorgeous interior shots and sparkling action pictures under sail to satisfy any sailor or photographer.

The Best of the Best: The Yacht Designs of Sparkman & Stephens (Hardcover) by Francis S. Kinney and Russell Bourne
Review
This is a book for the yachting purist and technically minded. Few design offices have achieved the success of S&S. The book covers meter boats to fast cruising designs as well as out and out racers. This volume is a must for any sailor with a knowledge of the hsitory of yacht design. One dissappointment is the lack of colour photographs. It is difficult to appreciate the true beauty of "The Classic Yachts" when all are depicted with line drawings and black hulls.
Generally a good read with interesting insights into the personalities and motivations of Rod and Olin Stevens. Some heartfelt commentary is woven throught the pages by folk who knew the brothers well.
I would recommend the book to serious sailors but not for those seeking a coffee table book.

Legendary Yachts by Gilles Martin-Raget, Francois Chevalier
Book Description
A tribute to the great racing yachts of the past, their current renaissance, and today's new enthusiasm for the classic regatta.
Every summer, as international classic yacht regattas pass through Monaco, Porto Cervo, Cannes, and other harbors, the public imagination is seized by the elegant wooden J-boatsmajestic vessels of gleaming brass, honed teak decks, and brightly varnished hulls. Under their expansive canvas sails, the last of the extraordinary 12-meter racing yachts compete once again, evoking a vanished era when the waves were broken only by the power of the wind.
Vibrantly illustrated in full color, Legendary Yachts offers a definitive exploration of the glorious age of sailing while also recounting the lore and mystique of the classic yacht regatta. This handsome book features such renowned yachts as Pen Duick, Shenandoah, Avel, and Creole, admirably captured in exterior and interior photographs. Whether twisting furiously in the heat of a race, coasting serenely on the sea, or docked in a picturesque Mediterranean port, the yachts are displayed with astonishing clarity.
With an engaging text that illuminates five different regattas and delves into the histories of over a dozen classic boats, Legendary Yachts also details the rather recent phenomenon of restoring these wooden boats, some of them more than a century old! The book describes the care and craftsmanship that go into bringing the boats back to life and uses 90 precise drawings from a variety of perspectives to reveal the structure of each vessel. Sure to appeal to sailing enthusiasts, Legendary Yachts will also be welcomed by those who love the sea, admire fine craftsmanship, or appreciate beautiful photography.
300 full-color illustrations; 90 black-and-white drawings
