EBook In Shoal Waters : A Lifetime Sailing the Thames Estuary and Beyond (EPUB, PDF)

by A. C. Stock

Book review

Charlie Stock worked for the best part of a year on this his final book, after poor health finally obliged him to 'swallow the anchor' in 2010; sadly he died in September 2012 at 85, a few months short of seeing it in print in an initial short digital run, which rapidly sold out.Lodestar Books is privileged to publish his highly engaging account of sixty-plus years plying the inland and coastal waters of south-east England, mostly singlehanded - the last half-century in the tiny gaffer Shoal Waters herself. The waters of north Norfolk, the Broads, the Thames Estuary and the south coast have distinctive characteristics of weather and tide which can inconvenience the unwary, or worse; Charles describes and addresses these to perfection.In Shoal Waters is the nautical autobiography of this singular sailor, who was for so long a part of the scenery on the Thames Estuary and adjacent waterways, and it perfectly complements his earlier, more instructional Sailing Just For Fun (from Seafarer Books).
