Up Aloft With Old Harry
by Des Sleightholme
This is a wonderful collection of batty observations on the sailing scene. Wickedly perceptive, Sleightholme attacks pomposity with scarifying gusto, taking the micky out of everything and everybody afloat. Such topics as leaking boats, dragging anchors, the charms of twin keels, the Fastnet Race, moving house by boat, chartering and, of course, the perils of going aloft, are handled with pitiless relish.
