Important Notice

Apple is constantly upgrading new OS versions for their devices.


I understand that this is a "must-do", to keep devices up to date and reliable.


But what I don't understand, is why an iBook that has been working fine in earlier versions, won't work in upcoming versions while no changes have been made to its content.


Frustrated by the need to upgrade something that was working fine, I've decided to retire my book from Apple's market. So it's no longer available.


Down below, a souvenir of how original this creation was.


Reviews


Nick Bice - Head of The Boatyard - VOR

"Another awesome book by this very talented photographer. This is a must along side his 360deg photo book to have as part of your library"


Carolijn Brouwer - Crew member Team SCA

"I am absolutley amazed with the beautiful photos in this book! I especially liked the photos of the Race Village in Auckland and the Boatyard as these were photos we dont get to see very often and in the end, its the people in the boatyard, their hard work behind the scenes, that make it possible for us to go out racing and cross the oceans. The action shots during ProAm and Inport Races really show the focus and intensity the crew go through when doing their jobs. Basically there are no words necessary to describe whats happening, the picture says it all. Great work!!!


Beatriz Martínez - Volunteer in ALC & AUH - VOR

"Awesome! You go into the VOR eyes from inside. Beauty and reality, it’s really worth "


Michèl van de Vall - Technical Support Engineer - MASTERVOLT

"Super beautiful! These two books give readers a perfect glimpse into the world of the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-2015. All aspects of a stopover portrayed with great photos. Teams at The Boatyard, The Race Village and all Races. A wonderful impression!


Ashton Sampson - Electronics - DIVERSE

"They are great and very vivid and brings back fond memories as I have followed them around the world having installed all the electronics on the race boats. The 360deg photos are fantastic as having the function to click on them and then scanning around really captures the essence of placing one there at that moment in time "


Marco Sevila - SOUTHERN SPARS

"I recommend to all lovers of this sport to read this exemplary work of one of the most prestigious competitions in the world! With incredible detail it reflects the Volvo Ocean Race! Excellent!


Sophie C. Bundorf

"If you love sailing you can’t miss this book! The best sailors in the world in charge of all magnificent VO65. They all look like real winners. And in the background, the Bay of Auckland, which looks dynamic and conquering. Big waste of beauty and action in this sensational mix; concrete, sea and wind "
