Synopsis

One of Britain's greatest living sailors shares a collection of distilled wisdom, acute observation and fascinating anecdotes. _x000D_This book is a collection of provoking, insightful and perceptive pieces of writing by Robin Knox-Johnston. His forthright and compelling views are based on a wealth of experience and expertise. The spotlight of his steely gaze falls upon the great ocean races and the brave men and women who compete in them. He considers the lessons of seamanship he learned over hundreds of thousands of miles at sea and he looks ahead, considering the future of sailing for racing and cruising yachtsmen. _x000D_This will entertain and inform in equal measure. A comprehensive index makes this a useful work of reference as well as a wonderful title which can be dipped into at leisure.
