Across Five Decades
Across five decades presents the story of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race over the past five decades, through the eyes of a master photographer.
The ultimate presentation
Both in words and images, this is a bird’s eye view and a behind-the-scenes account of the defining moments of this world-famous race. It also tells how an avid adventurer became one of the world’s most identifiable and celebrated yacht race photographers.
This collector’s edition art book is presented in a heavyweight clamshell case and measures 430mm x430mm including 110 pages and weighs 6.7 kilograms. The edition is limited to 170 numbered and hand-signed copies (The number of entries in the 75th anniversary Rolex Sydney Hobart yacht race).
The text, written by the photographer and Mark Whittaker, a Walkley award-winning journalist, will have you laughing and crying as you experience the race from this unique perspective.
This stunning collectable story includes more than 70 of Richard’s favourite and best-known photographs. It also includes the best images of the 75th race and can include one image of your own yacht from any year.
It is hand-crafted from the highest quality materials with the longest lifespan available.
