Riassunto: Foreword by Mike Stammers. Owing to the simplicity of their rigging, coastal schooners were among the last commercial sailing vessels to remain in operation. Written by one of the men who worked the schooners, this authentic portrayal of a now obsolete way of life is steeped in the details and lore that could only be acquired by firsthand experience. The author sailed on the Alert in 1934 and the Brooklands in 1939 and maintained an avid interest in the ships, never missing an opportunity to record their finer details. His wonderfully meticulous drawings are a unique compliment to the text and will be highly valued by modelers and all enthusiasts of the last days of sail.
L'autore: The late Douglas Bennet was a native of Cheshire, England. David Clement is one of the founders of the Southwest Maritime Historical Society and the editor of the British society's journal.
