Dave and Colette Murray were newcomers to sailing and boating when they bought their first boat in 1986 and began sailing on Lake Windermere. They were absolute novices and had never been in a boat. After a few years, Dave wanted to put his newly learned skills to the test and sail in more challenging waters. This led to sailing holidays in Scotland, down south in the Solent, the English Channel and onward to the Mediterranean. Dave always dreamed of sailing across the Atlantic, but never thought he would be able to persuade his wife to go with him, but he did. This book tells true and amusing stories of their sailing life from early beginnings to ARC 2000, relating many of the highs and lows that are a way of life for the cruising yachtsman.

This series presents students with a library of outstanding plays, many of which are otherwise unobtainable, or available only in out-of-date or unannotated editions. The texts are newly edited, with modernized spelling and punctuation where appropriate; and there are scholarly introductions and annotation. Oscar Wilde was already one of the best-known literary figures in Britain when he was persuaded to turn his extraordinary talents to the theatre. Between 1891 and 1895 he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the 1890s, and retain their power today. The social comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, offer a moving as well as witty dissection of society and its morals, with a sharp focus on sexual politics. By contrast, the experimental, symbolist Salome, written originally in French, was banned for public performance by the English censor. Wilde's final dramatic triumph was his 'trivial' comedy for serious people, The Importance of Being Earnest, arguably the greatest farcical comedy in English.
