This is a beautiful gift edition of a much loved classic. In the words of John Leather, 'few sailing books become classics like this one', and since first publication in 1932 it has lost none of that fresh charm which has endeared it to so many generations of sailors. The Magic of the Swatchways rejoices in the natural romance of the wild and deserted creeks and views of the East Coast of England, speaking to those who love to explore in small boats. It is a book that will enthrall anyone who is entranced by the peace and solitude of the creeks at night and the moan of the sea on the sands. The Magic of the Swatchways provides a fascinating insight into a unique and beautiful area which may never again be the same.

The Magic of the Swatchways was Maurice Griffiths' favourite book. In the words of John Leather, 'few sailing books become classics like this one', and since first publication in 1932 it has lost none of that fresh charm which has endeared it to so many generations of sailing. The book tells of cruising in a 6-ton cutter, a lean hulled 7-ton yawl, a converted smack, a sloop-rigged converted ships' lifeboat, a small barge yacht and a centreboard sloop in the heart of Maurice's beloved East Coast shoal waters, and all infused with the Griffiths' trademark evocative charm. The Magic of the Swatchways will enthrall anyone who is entranced by the peace and solitude of the creeks at night and the moan of the sea on the sands. It provides a fascinating insight into a unique area which may never again be the same.

Well established as ‘the East Coast yachtsman’s bible’, this 20th edition of Jan Harber’s classic cruising companion marks the book’s 60th anniversary. Dating back to 1956 when Jack Coote, Jan’s father, produced the first black and white edition, East Coast Rivers, now extending from Lowestoft to Ramsgate, continues to cover the rivers, curlew-haunted creeks and intricate shoals and swatchways of the Thames Estuary and surrounding rivers. Comprehensive pilotage and nautical information based on years of local knowledge is complemented by port information and local maritime history, helping cruising sailors to make the most of their visit to the East Coast. The text is illustrated throughout with updated charts and photographs, including spectacular aerial shots of a number of the rivers and entrances that make up this cherished cruising ground. Not only a pilot guide, this is the memoir of a family’s history; exploring, capturing and celebrating this extraordinary sailing area.

For over fifty years Maurice Griffiths cruised in a variety of small yachts amongst the rivers and creeks of the Thames Estuary and round the coasts of Suffolk, Essex and Kent. In this classic book he tells of the boats he owned in that time, and shows how the experience gained with these small craft helped to turn him into a dedicated yacht designer. There is more than an echo here of the magic the author found amongst his beloved swatchways, so although this book contains much lore and advice for the yacht designer, discerning owner and builder, it is also a book of delightful reminiscences.

Mike Peyton is the world's most famous nautical cartoonist - the Matt or Giles of the sailing world. This is his authorised biography, complete with many of his iconic cartoons, written by Dick Durham - ex Fleet Street journalist, Yachting Monthly's Features Editor and Mike's lifelong friend. Dick romps through Mike's life, from his early schoolboy sketches to being seconded by the intelligence corps during World War Two to draw maps of the North African deserts, from there running a PoW newspaper, and, back in the UK, going on to work as a freelance cartoonist on as diverse titles as the Church of England Times and Corsetry & Underwear. Sympathetic, entertaining and insightful, this is the long-deserved biography of a man who has dominated the nautical humour scene for well over seven decades.
