About the Author

Denny Desoutter was the much loved founding Editor of Practical BoatOwner magazine and a passionate sailor. He never lost sight of the basics, though, and this glossary represents one of his finest legacies in making boating terminology eminently accessible for the average boater. PBO is Britain's biggest selling boating magazine. There is no better team to update the content for sailors as well as motorboaters


'A great reference tome for anyone who wants to converse on equal terms with old salts at the yacht club bar, decipher yachtbrokers' sale patter, or pass a few idle moments in the downstairs loo.' Yachting Monthly (November 2010) 'If you are new to sailing and don't want to be shown up...then this book will undoubtledly help, because it's generally sensible in its choice of terms to define...As guides of this nature go, this is probably one of the better ones.' Sailing Today (February 2011) 'The book would make a perfect present for novice and experienced sailors alike.' Cruising Association (December 2010)
