Tom Cunliffe has been sailing for over 35 years, both racing and cruising. Self-taught as a teenager in 'engineless' 22 footers, his years spent teaching offshore at the National Sailing Centre have given him a remarkable knack of explaining how skippering can be low-stress and safe, while never forgetting that, above all, it has to be fun. Cruising remains Tom Cunliffe's passion. He currently owns a 40-foot gaff cutter, and has sailed his own yachts with friends and family from the Caribbean to Russia and from Brazil to the Arctic. He has written many books and articles for the world's press.Review:
"There are all too few authors? who not only know their subject but can write well about it. Tom Cunliffe is one."- Cruising
