Written for all those who love to explore in small boats. It is a book that aims to enthrall anyone who is entranced by the peace and solitude of the creeks at night and the moan of the sea on the sands

About the Author

Maurice Griffiths was known as the Magician of the Swatchways. He edited Yachting Monthly for 40 years, and over his lifetime designed over 140 different yachts. His 'little ship' design revolutionised small craft design, and helped earn him the reputation as one of the pioneers who helped make yachting affordable. He died in 1997, aged 96.
