Britain and the Sea with Sam Llewellyn, Tuesday December 1st
Sam Llewellyn writes a novel most years, writes for the Daily Telegraph, and is a columnist for Practical Boat Owner and Classic Boat. As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy he is also Editor of Marine Quarterly, a journal of the sea, and was the judge for the 2014 CA log competition.
By definition couples sailing alone have to do everything for themselves. They leave the berth, set the sails, helm the boat, trim the sails, navigate, anchor, pick up mooring buoys, enter harbour, moor up and all without the help of any extra crew. So they need to carry out these manoeuvres efficiently and effectively, with as little physical effort as possible.
