Sailing: A Sailor's Dictionary, Henry Beard & Roy McKie
4 Henry Beard & Roy McKie Sailing: A Sailor's Dictionary
Workman Publishing 246819 New York 1981 0894801449 / 9780894801440 Softcover Good Condition With text by Henry Beard, founder of the National Lampoon and illustrations by Roy McKie, here is the New York Times bestselling lexicon of sailing--or, the art of getting wet and becoming ill while slowly going nowhere at great expense. Sailing embarks upon uncharted waters, diving authoritatively into terms like adrift (a boat that is drifting), aglub (a boat that is sinking), and flotsam (anything floating in the water from which there is no response when the offer of a cocktail is made). Full-sail ahead, flying the flag of obsession, the book lists close to 200 definitions and presents more than 50 full-page cartoons--to bring new meaning not just to the anchor and Aneroid Barometer, but to the boom, buoy, brightwork, and Beaufort Scale, too. The book plumbs the depths of the sea's rich traditions, providing a fix on the catamaran and dinghy, the gunwale and jib-boom, the mizzen, porthole, and ketch (a disagreeable clause in many boat-purchase contracts). 710,000 copies in print. 93 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Humour; United States; Humour; Sport::Sailing. ISBN: 0894801449. ISBN/EAN: 9780894801440. Inventory No: 246819. Paperback

First Lady: A History-Making Solo Voyage around the World, Kay Cottee
9 Kay Cottee First Lady: A History-Making Solo Voyage around the World
MacMillan 240018 Australia 1991 Reprint 0330271741 / 9780330271745 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good On June 5th, 1988, Kay Cotee fulfilled a childhood dream. After covering more than 22,000 nautical miles in 189 days at sea she became the first woman in history to complete a solo, nonstop and unassisted voyage around the world. Sailing her yacht, Blackmores First Lady, Kay Cottee crossed the world's great oceans, rounded the five capes of the Southern Hemisphere and was lashed by gale-force winds and mountainous seas. She battled the elements, faced natural hazards such as icebergs, whales and rocks and won the battle against the most deadly enemy of all - loneliness. For six months she grabbed no more than twenty minutes sleep at a time. For five months she had no fresh food. Her only human contact was by radio. When Kay Cottee and Blackmores First Lady made their triumphant entry into Sydney Harbour the recognition of her courage was spontaneous and overwhelming. In a climax befitting her achievements Kay was made an officer of the Order of Australia and was then awarded the highest honour of all when she was named the Bicentennial Australian of the Year. Kay Cottee - First Lady is the story of a remarkable voyage. Told in her own words, it is a thrilling account of Kay's historic achievement and true testament to her courage, determination and irrepressible good humour 226 pages. Light foxing to outer page edges. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
