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.

Highly recommended.
A grand collection of Tom's opinions, of which I agree on every one.

A little irrelevant.

This is a story put on by a rather opinionated english reporter. Some of his information is good, but most of it was disappointing. Things like - you don't need a life-jacket while in the water, while talking about how much difficulty most skippers have coming back for a man-overboard.
