Eileen Ramsay was at the centre of a unique period in yachting history, and this wonderful book, featuring her classic photography, celebrates an extraordinary woman and her extraordinary subjects.
Eileen's heyday was between 1957 and 1970 - a time when eccentrics ruled, records were there for the setting, and women weren't often to be found behind the lens. But Eileen established herself as one of the greatest yachting photographers of her time, taking famous portraits of such sailing icons as Sir Francis Chichester, Eric Tabarly, Olympians like Rodney Pattisson and Keith Musto, and historic pictures from the first OSTAR (Observer Single-handed Trans-Atlantic Race). She was the only photographer Sir Francis Chichester allowed on his Gypsy Moth yachts, and managed to photograph the notorious charmers Uffa Fox and Max Aitken.
Her unique archive records the explosive growth in dinghy and offshore sailing during the post-war years, and includes pictures of the first Enterprises, Mirrors, Ospreys, Optimists and the first America's Cup 12 metresSceptre and Evaine.
This beautiful book features:
- the post-war explosion in dinghy sailing
- the growth of offshore racing
- the pioneering days of the OSTAR race and solo circumnavigations
- the 12 metre class and the America's Cup
- post-war powerboat racing
- iconic cruising yachtsmen as well as sailing eccentrics
There are also wonderful personal tributes to Eileen throughout by sailing personalities such as Vernon Stratton, Keith Musto and Uffa Fox.
Recensione: Barry Pickthall's recent unearthing of Eileen Ramsay's photo archives has been a great find. Spanning the 50s-70s of British yachting and dinghy sailing, they present a great snapshot of a time of transition from wooden to plastic boats and from black and white to colour photography. --Steffan Meyric Hughes, News Editor Classic Boat 20120502
