Resumen del libro

The Canoe Yawl was developed from the sailing canoe in late Victorian times to better suit the conditions encountered on Britains coasts and larger estuaries, and in this history, study and present-day survey Richard Powell, Technical Secretary of The Albert Strange Association, makes its case to be the best type today for the single- or short-handed coastal cruising sailor. The story of this modest yet seaworthy family of boats is described from its emergence with the Victorian pioneers of leisure sailing, through its hey-day around the turn of the twentieth century, its decades in the doldrums following the Great War, and its remarkable and welcome revival in recent years using both traditional and modern materials. Profusely illustrated with the authors drawings, original design drawings, and photographs'spanning the past century and a half'The Canoe Yawl is an essential addition to the literature of traditional sail.
