This book provides the perfect introduction to the magnificent world of the sailing ship, explaining its continuing appeal and importance today.  However, Jonathan Eastland does not ignore their glorious past, with tales of the famous China clipper tea trade of the 19th century, the Cutty Sark’s record breaking speed of 17.5 knots and the tragic fate of the many ships which foundered in storms or on rock-strewn coasts.
