Summary

Summary

Here is a little book about nautical etiquette that will appeal to all those who sail for sport or pleasure, from the neophyte to the veteran boater. With a light but sure touch, marked by gentle humor, Lindsay Lord explores both the past and present state of yachting culture. He succeeds in extracting from the elaborate and sometimes extravagant mores of bygone years those practices that are sound and worth preserving. There are also apt descriptions of the protocol for the yacht club ashore, including such topics as launching parties, club commissioning, and even tipping.
