Knox-Johnston On Sailing

Knox-Johnston On Sailing


Robin Knox-Johnston

Format: eBook
ISBN: 9780470972519

Product Description

by Robin Knox-Johnston

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 Knox-Johnston. His forthright and compelling views are based on a wealth of experience. 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.
