Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a collection of nautical wit and wisdom culled from my columns over the years in Yachting Monthly magazine. There’s a lively mix of anecdote, opinion and instruction. It covers anything from the sort of tale you’d hear in the pub to lessons I learned while crossing the Atlantic in an engineless gaffer with only the stars to guide. I also manage to get in a few rants about the red tape and rules that are beginning to  infringe the freedom of our seas.  It’s a book for dipping into.

“Nobody captures the magic of sail or conveys the lessons of seamanship like Tom. He’s one of sailing’s great raconteurs.” David Glenn, Editor, Yachting World
