The Cruise of Naromis: August in the Baltic 1939

Author: 

G A Jones

ISBN number: 

9781899262335

Published by: Golden Duck UK Ltd. in paperback 

This is far from a straightforward cruise log: part diary, part biography, part naval history. The timing may be unique: having sailed up the German coast and passed through the Kiel Canal, the heroine ends her three-week voyage at Grimsby on Saturday 2nd September 1939, the day before the Second World War began.

Canvas Flying, Seagulls Crying

Author: 

Justin Tyers

ISBN number: 

978-1-4729-0980-0

Published by Bloomsbury,  this book is a good account of a couple whose lives were reborn by taking to the sea after a disastrous fire that destroyed their home.   It gives a tale of sailing the west coast of Scotland, down the Irish Sea and on to Cornwall and Normandy. It is a story of everyday life on a live aboard venture as experienced by two novice sailors. More of a tale of adventures and mishaps than a practical handbook, it is a good read with much about the harbours, islands and characters encountered.

Your First Atlantic Crossing

Author: 

Les Weatheritt

ISBN number: 

978-1-4081-8806-4

Published by : Adlard Coles Nautical

I read this as someone who has never sailed the Atlantic, but has a notion I’d like to. Did I find this useful?

The author has made the trip a few times, in different boats. This is the fourth edition. His first crossing was in a 32 footer plus bowsprit, so he has in mind the everyday sailor.
