Only So Many Tides by Jon Wainwright


Only So Many Tides by Jon Wainwright

Jon Wainwright's love of the sea, and in particular for his boat Deva , shines through cruising, racing and fishing in a traditional wooden boat over 38 years. His experience in organizing the best rig for the conditions is matched by his understanding of boat construction and the changes he implemented on Deva . This is a lifetime adventure between man and boat with many trials and tribulations for both, capturing some of the best elements of traditional sail. The story moves through a backcloth of change from the area of Liverpool Docks to Felixstowe and the forging of strong links with Holland in joint classic boat events.
