Publisher's Summary

Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a selection of Tom Cunliffe’s funniest, wisest and most thought-provoking writing from the pages of Yachting Monthly. Tom’s love of language and sense of humour shine through as he recalls the wealth of sinners and saints he has met on docksides from Southampton to South America, Greenwich to Greenland and Newtown to New York. He has a gift for capturing the magic of sail and finding pearls of practical wisdom in the most unlikely nautical adventures. Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a lively miscellany of a wit, wisdom and wonder.
It will make you laugh and make you think – and make you want to cast off to enjoy the delights of life afloat.

Enjoyable

Excellent stuff, all the chapters were great listening, Cunliffe has an excellent voice for the narration, it works very well. I'm going to leave it for a few weeks then listen to the entire shebang again.

Entertaining, salty but a little "ranty"

An entertaining series of essays full of sensible advice and evocative memories of the sea but a little "ranty" about the malaise of health and safety

Bliss

This book is a sailing gem. I couldn't stop listening, and I was swept from outright laughs to just letting the nautical language and wealth of anecdotes wash over me. Beautifully delivered by Tom Cunliffe, thank you.
