Some­times a lit­tle leg­work is nec­es­sary to get the shot, which was the case for ma­rine pho­tog­ra­pher Onne van der Wal on a re­cent trip to Hawaii. “I had seen pics of the stun­ning Na­pali coast, which is on the north­west­ern side of Kauai,” says van der Wal. “I thought it would be cool to get a sail­boat un­der­way in front of those cliffs and shoot it from the air for my new book Sail­ing Amer­ica. The prob­lem is there are very few sail­boats in and around Kauai, so I put out a call for help. Honolulu-based sail­ing pho­tog­ra­pher Lau­ren Easley popped up and put me in touch with Craig Hines, who owns Saras­vati, a 47-foot Beneteau that calls Hanalei Bay on Kauai home. Luck was on my side, and Craig was happy to go out for a sail while I flew over­head and clicked away!”
