Quality Time with Mike Peyton FULL STORY HERE

Mike Peyton sadly passed away at the end of January, just after his 96th birthday.

In order to celebrate his life, Fernhurst Books is re-publishing his book Quality Time?

This was originally published in 2005 to clebrate Mike's 50 years of sailing.

In this book, along with 80 of his incomparable cartoons, Mike recounts how he became a yachting cartoonist and his fifty years of sailing.

In the book Mike reveals, in a typical deadpan style, how he became an Art Student and was taught to draw. The yachting bit took a bit longer.

But fortunately for us the two came together and a great comic talent was born.

Mike Peyton lied about his age to join the army at the start of the Second World War.

First new sports Catamaran book in 10 years FULL STORY HERE

Almost 40 years after the original Start to Finish series, Fernhurst Books are relaunching the series with The Catamaran Book.

Way back in 1979, Fernhurst Books was launched with the first of its Start to Finish series which helped sailors – from beginners to Club Champions – get the most out of their chosen craft.

For 2017 Fernhurst are relaunching the Start to Finish series with a brand new layout, and a fresh set of contributors keeping the books at the top of their game.

When Tom’s Phipps father Brian wrote the first edition, Tom was not even born! Now an Olympic-hopeful, Tom Phipps is the lead author of the new edition.

Since then, Tom has won the RYA Youth National Championships three times and the ISAF (now World Sailing) Youth World Championships twice.

Tom and his crew Nikki Boniface are currently the leading GBR Nacra 17 team campaigning for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
