Blue Water Classics is photographer and author Andrew Wilson’s 4th self-published title. Completed over a four year period, the book contains over 400 images of the race through its 500 pages, and an “amazing array of intimate interviews of some of the absolute legends of the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.”  Released in November 2020, Blue Water Classics was an instant number #1 best seller, out-selling releases by both Barrack Obama and Sir David Attenborough.

"This new book on Australia’s most famous blue water classic, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, will become a collector’s item for anyone who has an interest in the race.  Participants and spectators alike will revel in photographer Andrew Wilson’s amazing array of intimate portraits of some of the absolute legends of the race, including owners, crew, administrators and even the odd journalist. Backed by extensive interviews from journalist and race media manager Di Pearson, who probably knows more about the race than anyone else alive, this is a book that examines the people who make the race. It is not about the boats."

As David Kellett AM says in the foreword, “Andrew has covered all aspects of the race from the preparation to the finish and everything in between, including the personalities involved in the control of the race, the safe haven of Eden and the officers of the vital search and rescue organisations. A great insight into what goes on behind the scenes each year.”

"If you have competed in the race, are planning to in the future, or if you just love great stories about people doing exceptional things under difficult conditions, then you will love this book."

"It packs an enormous amount of content and some truly remarkable photographs into its 520 pages. It is a book you can immerse yourself in for days on end.  All the adrenaline and drama of the great race is here – the heroes, the villains, the folklore and everything in between.  Settle in for one of the best yachting reads of your life."
