A wonderfully funny "nautobiography" by one of sailing's best-known characters, writers and former editor of Yachting Monthly. Behind his hilarious wit an unerring eye for a cock-up, there lies an immense experience of sailing, on a wide variety of craft including the sail training ship Hoshi. Sleightholme is by common consent one of the few reliably funny writers about yachting, and this brief account of his sailing life is packed with his special brand of side-swipes and hugely enjoyable mirth at the expense of himself as well as other unfortunates. His own cartoons add pep. Pb. 200pp.
