Discussion on another thread about Charles Stock's book 'Sailing just for fun' made me think about other sailing books. I can recommend the following. Anyone like to add their favourites?
'The Magic of the Swatchways' - Maurice Griffiths
'Swatchways and little ships' - Maurice Griffiths
'Shrimpy' - (A record round the world voyage in an 18 ft yacht!).
And of course, everyone's all time favourite - and mine- 'The Riddle of the Sands' Erskine Childers.

Maurice Griffiths 'The first of the tide' is another excellent read
