One of the best yachting books ever written, this is MAurice Griffith's first collection of yarns about the joys and problems of sailing the Thames estuary. The Magic of the Swatchways rejoices in natural romance of the wild and deserted creeks and rivers of the East Coast of England, speaking to those who love to explore in small boats.
