In this collection of observations on the sailing scene, Sleightholme attacks pomposity with gusto, taking the mickey out of everything and everybody afloat. He handles, with pitiless relish, such topics as leaking boats, dragging anchor, the charm of twin keels, Fastnet Race, chartering and of course going aloft.
Up Aloft with Old Harry is another wonderful collection of Des Sleightholme's batty observations on the sailing scene. Wickedly perceptive, Sleightholme attacks pomposity with scarifying gusto, taking the mickey out of everything and everybody afloat. Such topics as leaking boats, dragging anchors, the charms of twin keels, the Fastnet Race, moving house by boat, chartering and, of course, the perils of going aloft, are handled with pitiless relish, while the improbable yet all too familiar character, Old Harry, appears with regularity like some pantomime devil in wrinkled red tights.
