ANDERSON, Robert, (ed.). Heard at the Helm : A humorous look at the sailing lark. Illustrated by Ray Chesterton. London : Stanley Paul, (1968). First Edition. Pp [1]-128. Illustrated. 8vo (134 x 204 mm), blue cloth, silver lettering to spine.

Raymond 'Ray' Wilson Chesterton (b. February 22, 1912, Ashford, Kent).

"You will find them every week-end operating from the estuaries round our coasts in craft of varying sizes and hues and carrying a weird assortment of nautical names. They are the sailing enthusiasts, the men (and the women) who traditionally muck around in boats, and because they comprise a good cross-section of the community they throw up aspiring Chichesters in profusion from the most unexpected quarters.

So for many households during the sailing season the week-end sees a complete change in character in parents, sons and daughters. The man of the house discards his drab office uniform for the brightest blues and whites in pullovers, oilskins, T-shirts and slacks: his corded shoes and naval cap completing the colourful picture. His personality usually changes with his uniform and the family find they have a Captain Bligh on their hands. The women folk, no to be outdone, tend to achieve just as bright a sartorial effect.

How these sailing enthusiasts behave in and out of the water has provided a legion of tales, from the sailing type who took his wife on a disastrous honeymoon on the Broads to the woman crew member who was left behind to make room in the car for two crates of beer which were regarded as essential victualling supplies on board. This then is an attempt to mirror the life of the week-end sailors and shows the more light-hearted aspects of their sport." (from the dj).

Text Illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Toy 4714. "Unlike many of the Englishman's traditional sports, Yachting has not faded with the way of life that brought it into being. On the contrary more people are sailing than ever betore, and they are bringing to their pastime a striving for technical expertise wholly in line with the urges of their environment. But yachtsmen today not only thinkharder about their sailing—they think harder aoout their boats, large or s mall, than did their forefathers. They have grasp of the relation between design and performance which is quite new in a sport in which the amateur decisively dominates the scene, and they have shown themselves quick to appreciate the advantages which new methods of fabrication, and new materials, may offer them. This discriminating enthusiasm has advanced the art of yacntdesign, still mainly in professional hands like the science of yacht build ing itself, at an unprecedented rate. New Design for Sail synthesizes the various influences and trends which have combined to produce the contemporary sailing vessel, and demonstrates it as a new Classic Type, completely in accord both with the aspirations of modern yachtsmen and the facilities which modern technology has placed at their disposal. The illustrations include over 20 diagrams in the text and nearly 90 photographs. John Arrow has been sailing in all types of yacht for the past 25 years. He has made an extensive study of the latest trends in design, and as Yachting Correspondent for a daily newspaper he has been able to make a critical assessment of performance." (from the dj).

BAILEY, Anthony. The Coast of Summer : Sailing New England Waters from Shelter Island to Cape Cod. (New York) : Harper Collins Publishers, (1994). First Printing. Pp [i]-ix,(1),[1]-357,(1). Map. 8vo, white cloth spine, green paper covered boards, copper lettering to spine.

Bailey and his wife Margot's 1991 cruise aboard their 27-foot fiberglass sloop Lochinvar.

"The New England coast, a small cruising sloop, warm windsand Anthony Bailey's seductive storytelling powers. Lochinvar sails tyhe waters between eatsrn Long Island and the tip of Cape Cod, poking into deep harbors and shallow ponds, anchoring off fashionalble resorts and in remote coves, encountering the rough and the smooth, and exploring, as is Bailey's way, the present life of the coast while keeping a perceptive eye on the past.

The Coast of Summer is an account of a season afloat into which is woven an autobiography of half a lifetime spent sailing New England waters. [...]

For the armchair sailor, this book will be as gratifying as a full-sail breeze. To practical yachting people, it offers modestly but enticingly the fruits of much hard-won and not always heroic experience. And for readewrs curious about the bays and sounds, the Cape and the islands (including Shelter, Gardiners, Fishers, Block, Prudence, the Elizabeths, Marha's Vineyard and Nantucket) The Coast of Summer provides dramatic dips into history and personal incusrions into contemporary high-season life." - from the dj.
