    Just finished The Mary Deare by Hammond Innes, a grand sea thriller of the old school.
    If I remember correctly Innes made a packet out of this book and it gave him the cash to build an offshore racer called - Mary Deare.

    Molecular Gastronomy by Hervé This, and The Science of Cooking by Peter Barham.

    Presents to help keep my mind off grimmer things.
    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Excellent book -very well written, moves along at a cracking pace and leaves one with a head full of questions afterwards!

    A Race Too Far by Chris Eakin.

    Story of the 1968 Golden Globe, harrowing enough for me to have to put it down near the end of the book for a day or so before I could finish it...


    Submarine : an anthology of first-hand accounts of the war under the sea, 1939-1945 / edited by Jean Hood.

    First hand accounts of what it was like to be a submariner, of all nations, during the second world war. Just started this, but what a breed apart those guys were/are.
