Sea Fever (Hardback)

A British Maritime Miscellany

Meg Clothier, Chris Clothier

Everything you need to know about the sea and shore, from high tides to half-hitches

'What a fun book! Reading Sea Fever is enticing and intriguing, like watching floating treasure bob past your nose.' Tristan Gooley, author of The Natural Navigator

AHOY THERE! REEL IN YOUR COPY OF THIS YEAR'S BEST BEACH READ

Are you all at sea by the seaside?

We are an island nation, surrounded on all sides by waters which provide us with everything from food to fun. But when it comes to really understanding the ins and outs, we sometimes find ourselves ... less than shipshape.

Luckily, Sea Fever is here to help: stacked to the gunnels with interesting facts, practical advice and esoteric seaside lore, once you've read it, you'll never feel like a landlubber again. So, dive on in to uncover the secrets of dead reckoning, the dark arts of crabbing and the charms of the morning star. Batten down the hatches and learn how to right a capsized boat, gut a fish or escape from quicksand. Or simply allow yourself to drift through maritime myth and legend, shuddering at krakens, swooning over selkies and revelling in the wheel's kick and the wind's song.

Meg Clothier

Meg Clothier has sailed from England to Alaska, worked as a journalist in London and Moscow, published two historical novels and run a London park café. She now lives, writes and grows vegetables on the Quantock Hills, but likes nothing better than getting cold, wet and hungry at the seaside, because then she can get warm and dry, drink gin and play Risk.

Chris Clothier has sailed single-handed from Scotland to Norway, found himself upside down in a yacht in the Southern Ocean and won countless dinghy races using all the deviousness he fails to bring to the Risk board. Nowadays, he lives in London where he keeps a weather eye on other people's money – when he's not daydreaming about kitesurfing for breakfast and barbecued mackerel for tea.
