About the Author

Tom Cunliffe first took charge of an engineless 20ft gaff sloop in 1961 when he was 14 years old. Since then he has sailed and skippered boats of all types from traditional craft both large and small to competitive modern racing yachts. He has voyaged in his own gaffers from the UK all over the world, from the Caribbean to Russia and from Brazil to the Arctic. The author of 30 books, Cunliffe is a columnist with Yachting Monthly and SAIL magazine, and a Yachtmaster Examiner. He was the presenter of The Boats That Built Britain (BBC Four/Two) and for many years owned the powerful 20-ton gaff cutter Westernman, which he sailed with his family from the south coast of England.


A great book for anyone contemplating or using gaff rig and full of good seamanly advice for others. * Classic Sailor *
