Three generations of the Beken family of Cowes have produced an archive in the field of nautical photography.
This is the third volume taken from their collection.
The book presents, in 135 four-colour images, major international sailing craft and ocean-going racers of the 20th century.
The grace of the classic vessels combines with the design of the Grand Prix Elite yachts, and the speed of the winners of the America's Cup.
This is a comprehensive portrait of the various types of craft that make up modern competitive yachting.
