Yachting Monthly's Further Confessions Yachtsmen Own Up to Their Sailing Sins by Paul Gelder

Yachting Monthly's Further Confessions Yachtsmen Own Up to Their Sailing Sins


Yachting Monthly's Further Confessions Yachtsmen Own Up to Their Sailing Sins by Paul Gelder

There were too many degrading disasters, mortifying mishaps and groan-worthy gaffes for one collection, so following on from Yachting Monthly's Confessions, here is another wonderful collection of humiliating misadventures from the enduringly popular Confessional column of Yachting Monthly magazine. For over 25 years, yachtsmen have clamoured to tell the world about their most embarrassing exploits and their most shameful blunders, so here is another crop of entertaining examples, so that the rest of us can learn from other people's mistakes instead of our own - or at least have a good laugh at their expense! Accompanied once more by cartoons from the inimitable Mike Peyton, this collection helps to prove that worse things really do happen at sea!


'It is the perfect pick-me-up for the day when you are depressed because the weather simply won't allow you to 'get out there'
and sail

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

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.
