If you don’t know your Anti-foul from your Americas Cup or your binnacle from your baggywrinkles then this might well be the book for you. Unlike most nautical dictionaries it contains some of the better known races and regattas. Armed with this book next time the captain yells at you to go to the bow of the boat you will (after a suitably long pause whilst you look things up) know that he wants you to go to the pointy bit at the front.
