foreword by Ian Howlett. new book. 


a wonderful, wide-ranging, and comprehensive history of yachting and sailing in Scotland, from the earliest recorded history to modern times.

Not only an invaluable historical record, but also full of fascinating digressions and anecdotes that vividly illustrate the sport and leisure activity of sailing in Scottish waters, the personalities, the boatbuilders, and the yachts, from the grand to the basic.

an important book and an enjoyable read - highly recommended.
