Salty Dog Talk
Wednesday, 10 December 2014 00:00

SaltyDogTalkBoating people who talk about turning a blind eye, cock-ups or try to give someone a wide berth have an idea where the language started. Others may not realise just how much of our daily chatter is in fact the language of the sea. They can find out where it all began in the latest version of a guide to the nautical origins of everyday expressions. It is a fun little paperback to set up family quizzes or to aid recovery on Boxing Day.

Salty Dog Talk by Bill Beavis and Richard McCloskey (Adlard Coles Nautical, 9781472907981, £8.99).

CLIPPER SHIPS AND THE GOLD AGE OF SAIL
Tuesday, 02 December 2014 00:00

ClipperShipsMutinies, rivalries and the inspirational story of Captain Mary Patten battling Cape Horn are all part of an illustrated history of the age of the Clippers. Yachting journalist Sam Jefferson, born in the Lake District and obsessed with sailing from an early age, brings the commercially inspired "races" to life with first hand accounts, newspaper reports and log entries. This was a time when shipping was sheer elegance.

The Legend of the Sea
Friday, 28 November 2014 00:00
LegendoftheSeaThey say that a picture is worth a thousand words. In that case the celebration of the dramatic work of France's top marine photographer, Gilles Martin-Raget, over the last decade must be worth trillions. His stunning photographs taken around the world reflect the development of sailing in all its forms - racing, classic yachts, superyachts and the America's Cup - where he was official photographer last year. This spectacular coffee table book will enthrall any sailor or photographer for hours and if it does not inspire landlubbers on to the water, nothing will. It is not cheap, but it is worth every penny. Spoil a loved one or drop big hints to someone to spoil you.
