The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

that's a pretty long and impressive list - I was wondering if you'd read them all. I'm currently reading Pete Goss's "Close to the Wind" (about 1/2 way done). I just requested the Fastnet Force 10 from my library - I'll dive into that one next. thanks for the list and recommendations!

cheers, my2fish

Fastnet Force 10 is well worth the wait. It's superb.

I have read most of them or they are on the pile next to my bed. I would recommend any of them each for totally different reasons.

Fastnet Force 10 was a good read. I just saw a documentary called Deep Water, which is about Donald Crowhurst. What a tragic tale. I wonder why he didn't just run his boat aground or scuttle it? So now "A Voyage For Madmen" is on my list along with Sir Robin's book.

Here are a few more books you might want to put on a list: "Sea Change" by Peter Nichols, "My Old Man And The Sea" by David and Daniel Hays, "Godforsaken Sea" by Derek Lundy, and "A Sea Vagabond's World" by Bernard Moitessier, it was his last book.


Here's another one for you: Trekka Round the World by John Guzzwell.
