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.

He's a bit of a crumudgeon and it shows

While I love sailing and tales of the sea, the author's sour view and poor narration left me wanting to chuck this one into the sea. Not my favorite.
