Seamanship

We have a selection of seamanship books listed here: Tom Cunliffe has years of experience sailing traditional and modern yachts and is always a pleasure to read. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston was the first person to perform a single-handed non-stop circumnavigation of the planet racing in the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, competing alongside Bernard Moitessier – who decided not to cross the finish line and continued on to Tahiti… both books are here.

The seamanship books listed for sale here are via ‘affiliate links’ – you don’t pay more, but we earn a small commission for making the recommendation. Happy browsing!
