One of Britain’s greatest living sailors shares a collection of distilled wisdom, acute observation and fascinating anecdotes. 

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.

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.

“RKJ's authority on sailing and his dry wit shines through nicely... this book definitely has plenty of entertainment value.” Sailing Today

“...an ideal book to pick up and put down without losing track of where you are.” Yachts & Yachting
