  • Yacht Were You Thinking?by Jonathan Eyers

Many boatowners have a secret fear that someone else got their brilliantly... more...

    Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, Ireland – every crewmember aboard the Spirit of Falmouth had served in one of these trouble spots, had had almost unimaginably traumatic experiences there, and then had trouble readjusting to civilian life. Some were hospitalised, others ended up living on the streets, many of them found themselves alone and isolated. ... more...

    McGraw-Hill Education 2017; US$ 24.00

    “A waterborne evacuation larger than Dunkirk—in New York Harbor? How come we barely noticed this at the time, and have largely forgotten about it since?

  • The Impractical Boat Ownerby Dave Selby

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 10.99

    This is a book with no practical purpose whatsoever. As any fan of Dave's would probably guess, a book by him won't make you a better sailor, and it won't provide any instruction on boat maintenance. But it will entertain – his light but observational writings tap the rich well of all those things that sailors know but few dare admit. The Impractical... more...

  • Rogue Wavesby Michel Olagnon

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 21.99
