This is a wonderful cherry-picked 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, and the cream of the crop are collected together here in the hope that the rest of us can learn from their mistakes instead of our own - or at least have a good laugh at their expense! Shipwrecks, strandings, mutiny, getting locked in the lavatory... you couldn't make them up. Counted among the contributors are no less than four former editors of Yachting Monthly, which goes to prove that worse things really do happen at sea! Accompanied by cartoons from the inimitable Mike Peyton, this collection deserves a place at every bunkside.

Following in the Yachting Monthly paperback series (Confessions, Further Confessions, etc) this book is based on a popular run of articles over the last eight years in Yachting Monthly, in which navigational and seamanship problems are posed and the highly respected author (former RYA Training Manager Bill Anderson) gives his opinion on the best way to resolve them. And if there are several options, he airs them all. The question and answer format is an ideal way for readers to absorb, in a very practical way, good seamanship lessons arising from a whole range of boating problems which have all occurred in real life. This accessible paperback is entertaining, non-preachy and non-textbook, and the invaluable advice is helped along with lively colour photos, maps and diagrams.

If you can't break the rules, you might as well laugh at them. This lighthearted look at the various rules that govern the world of sailing is for anyone who's come down on the wrong side of the race committee, anyone who's broken into a sweat just reading the COLREGS, and anyone who thinks bureaucracy saps all the fun out of boating. Jim Crawford turns a humorous eye on right-of-way rules, racing rules, sailing etiquette and more in this witty collection of sardonic cartoons that will have you laughing or groaning - or both.

“Nobody captures the magic of sail or conveys the lessons of seamanship like Tom. He’s one of sailing’s great raconteurs.” David Glenn, Editor, Yachting World Tom Cunliffe, star of BBC TV’s The Boats That Built Britain, is also Britain’s leading sailing writer. Here he shares a collection of his most entertaining, outspoken and instructive writing. Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a selection of his funniest, wisest and most thought-provoking writing from the pages of Yachting Monthly. Tom’s regular column for this premier sailing magazine gives him free reign to explore a wide range of topics. His love of language and sense of humour shine through as he recalls the wealth of sinners and saints he has met on docksides from Southampton to South America, Greenwich to Greenland and Newtown to New York. Tom has a gift for capturing the magic of sail and finding pearls of practical wisdom in the most unlikely nautical adventures. He is also a great champion for all those who love the freedom of the seas and refuses to mince his words as he stands up to the bullies and bureaucrats that might clog the water with rules and red tape. Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a lively miscellany of a wit, wisdom and wonder. It will make you laugh and make you think – and make you want to cast off to enjoy the delights of life afloat. Tom Cunliffe is a worldwide authority on sailing instruction and an expert on traditional craft. He is the author of more than 25 books and writes for Yachting Monthly, Yachting World and SAIL magazines.

'When I was first invited by a new - and handsome - man to the local Yacht Club to see his boat, I happily conjured up alluring pictures of me in an expensive bikini and a great suntan. It didn't occur to me that "see my boat" might actually mean going out in the thing....' Before she knew it, Angela Rice had agreed to a sailing trip on the notorious west coast of Scotland Â? and to marry her skipper. The voyage did nothing to allay her primal suspicion of anything afloat. But years later, one sunny Boat Show day, she discovered the lifestyle lure of powerboats. Speculating they might be less confusing and scary than their sailing counterparts, she cajoled her man into crossing to the dark side Â? with wild promises to try to become competent. Reluctance slowly gave way to relish, scepticism to skippering, the Solent to the Seine..... Originally published as a series in Motorboat & Yachting magazine, and illustrated with wonderful cartoons by David Semple, this is a funny and engaging account of one woman's relationship with the sea, a boat and her husband.

World of Peyton

When yachting journalist Dick Durham wrote Mike's biography, he called Mike 'the world's greatest yachting cartoonist' and this book shows why.

Mike Peyton drew his first cartoon in 1942. At the time he was interned in a German prisoner of war camp, and the cartoon appeared in a newspaper run by and for his fellow prisoners. Seventy years later, Mike has had to put the cap back on his pen permanently as failing eyesight has prevented him from drawing any more cartoons for the Yachting Monthly Confessional column for which he has become so well loved in recent years. Having provided illustrations for magazines as varied as the Church of England Times and Corsetry & Underwear, Mike became best known for cartoons relating to his first love - yachting (and as he will happily point out, he had a boat before he had a car). To celebrate his career, Adlard Coles Nautical presents this hilarious retrospective of the very best of Mike's cartoons from the last eight decades, a collection that will bring a smile to the face of even the most rain-sodden sailor stuck in his marina berth for another week supposedly in summer. When yachting journalist Dick Durham wrote Mike's biography, he called Mike 'the world's greatest yachting cartoonist' and this book shows why. Witty, wise and well-executed, Mike's lively, perceptive and highly distinctive cartoons will speak to anyone who has ever taken to the water.

CAPTAIN Adorable (3 year old Lucy) and her stinky BIG BROTHERS have their own ideas about what vacationing on the water is all about. Not everyone onboard agrees that the CAPTAIN is the one in charge of the SEA YA! Get ready for laughs when encountering what actually happens on boating vacations through Dave Alavoine's perceptive cartoons. All members of one's boating family will be able to relate, including moms, dads, kids, and grandparents. And when young readers encounter nautical words crafted within the cartoons, the fun will be in the challenge of deciphering them! Of course, a rather light-hearted, sassy glossary is also available, adding more chuckles to this fun read! (I mean, seriously, everyone knows that a HEAD is a boat toilet - don't they?)
