An internationally renowned maritime journalist and speaker, Tom Cunliffe is one of the biggest names in the sailing world. For the past ten years, he has edited the Great Seamanship column in Yachting World magazine,each column featuring an extract from a classic yachting book. Tom introduces the extracts by giving insightful background on the writers, their books, and what makes their experiences so worth reading about--and learning from.

This book comprises Tom's forty favorite extracts and covers the entire scope of yachting concerns, from small-boat handling to yacht racing to long-distance cruising and exploring. Introduced in Tom's quintessential lively, engaging fashion, and illustrated with photos from both the original books and Tom's own archives, this beautifully packaged book contains a wealth of yachting wisdom, and is a collection to be treasured.
