A collection of Des Sleightholme's observations on the nautical scene, this book includes the bloody-mindedness of marine engines, the dubious pleasures of sailing on a spring tide, skippers, launching, and novice crew. It contains several cartoon illustrations.
Off Watch With Old Harry is another delightfully entertaining collection of Des Sleightholme's amusing observations on the nautical scene. The 'joys' of antifouling, the bloody-mindedness of marine engines, the dubious pleasures of sailing on a spring tide, skippers, launching, and novice crew are just some of the subjects aired by 'Old Harry'. Perceptive, amusing and presented in Sleightholme's inimitable style, each episode is enlivened with a cartoon illustration. An ideal bunkside read. 'There are really only two side-splitting yachting journalists operating today - one of them is J D Sleightholme' Dolphin Book Club 'For the best humorous writing, Old Harry still reigns supreme' Yachting Monthly
