Sailing Just for Fun High Adventure on a Small Budget


Sailing Just for Fun High Adventure on a Small Budget by A. C. Stock

High adventure on a small budget - this is Charles Stock's philosophy as he cruises his midget 16 -foot gaff-rigged sailing cruiser Shoal Waters on the Thames Estuary, having logged 68,000 miles since 1963. No engine, no electronics. The art of pottering taken to its zenith, and happiness achieved with great simplicity. There's a lesson here for all of us who hanker after the South Seas!

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

If you love reading, then you'll love Lovereading! Full of tips & info for every discerning reader.

Lynne Rapson

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit
