Published by Adlard Coles, this latest volume by Anthony Burton (text) and Derek Pratt (photographs) is well written and beautifully photographed.
The author, Roger Barnes, has sailed in yachts as well as dinghies. He decided to sail open boats, small enough to trail behind a car, so that he could explore local and more distant shores.
The Manual manages to juggle between the fine line of comedic and factual texts. It provides useful and no doubt life saving information that would help you survive in the the wild until the rescue crew arrived.
