More About This Title Sailing Pocket Companion


Anyone who has ever set foot in a sailing vessel and come back for more will enjoy this humorous and original book. From the serious (how waggling wings can save lives) to the informative (how to pee at sea) to the indispensable (how to make the perfect Sea Breeze) to the enlightening (the truth about Captain Pugwash), The Sailing Pocket Companion takes the reader through a mass of notes, quotes, facts, and stats. But this book doesn’t just contain fascinating snippets of information, it also offers extracts from the finest writing about sailing over the centuries—Jonah in the Bible snuggles up to Darwin, while Hemingway shares space with Dickens.
