9780713646863: Magic of the Swatchways

Written for all those who love to explore in small boats. It is a book that aims to enthrall anyone who is entranced by the peace and solitude of the creeks at night and the moan of the sea on the sands

About the Author:

Maurice Griffiths was known as the Magician of the Swatchways. He edited Yachting Monthly for 40 years, and over his lifetime designed over 140 different yachts. His 'little ship' design revolutionised small craft design, and helped earn him the reputation as one of the pioneers who helped make yachting affordable. He died in 1997, aged 96.

Review:

'The Griffiths' magic has been reflected in his writing, so that it has touched the lives of innumerable people. It would be hard to guess just how many of them owe the kindling of their first enthusiasm to some chance passage in The Magic of the Swatchways'. J D Sleightholme 'I have always regarded it as one of the best yachting books ever written, fit to rank with Erskine Childers' Riddle of the Sands, among the very few immortals'. Frank Carr 'If anyone has not read this charming and evocative book, do so at once'. Classic Boat
