'The reality of some of the experience contained within might replace the worthy RYA handbooks with something a little more like reality!' www.sailers.co.uk (December 2009) 'From fitting-out, plumbing, buckets, and self-steering, to flag etiquette, language and shouting, the cruising sailor's world is humorously examined with gentle jibes all round. Illustrated in colour throughout by the cartoonist Michael Peyton, this amusing book will appeal to anyone who hankers after a simpler way of sailing.' Cruising Association 'This book is lavishly illustrated...Recommended to all who want a little nautical humour...' Nautical Magazine (May 2010) 'Each chapter makes us crease with laughter while reminding us about the simple pleasures of sailing.' The Little Ship Club (Summer 2010)Reseña del editor:
This quirky, lighthearted compilation brings together many of nautical thriller writer Sam Llewellyn's articles for "Practical Boat Owner" magazine (read by 200,000 a month). Owner of a traditional Drascombe Lugger, Llewellyn is an advocate of keeping sailing simple, and in this wonderful collection of nautical observations he promotes the minimalist boating lifestyle - whilst poking gentle fun at the expensive, complicated, ostentatious forms of sailing. Laced with humour and tongue in cheek jibes, and illustrated throughout by cartoons from the inimitable Mike Peyton, this is the ideal bunkside read for those who are attracted to the traditional way of sailing and keeping things simple (and cheap!) on the water.
