Knox-Johnston on Sailing
Sir Robin tells it like it is, and this 'best of' selection will serve to educate and entertain in equal measure. 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. The chapters are arranged by topic with an introduction to each one setting the scene.
A comprehensive index makes this a useful reference book as a well as wonderful title to dip in and out of. HB 224pp
