Review

"There are of course numerous books on singlehanded sailing, but few so readable and full of sheer commonsense and experience, and laced with the highly personal perspective of a man who has lived his life on the sea."

"A reference handbook of the essentials of single-handed sailing written for novice and expert sailors. Jones offers information and advice on the science and art of solo sailing with numerous anecdotes and details."

"A reference handbook of the essentials of single-handed sailing written for novice and experienced sailors. Jones offers information and advice on the science and art of solo sailing with humorous anecdotes and details. Topics range from accommodations and small-craft cooking to celestial navigation and hazardous conditions." -- Soundings "Soundings, April 1991"

About the Author

Tristan Jones was born aboard his father's sailing ship as it rounded Cape Horn. He grew up in Wales and later joined the Royal Navy. After he left the service, he began a career of yacht deliveries and, aboard his own yachts, undertook some of the most ambitious small craft journeys ever made. He has written many books about his incredible adventures and is one of the best-loved nautical writers today. His collection of stories Yarns is also published by Sheridan House.
