Only So Many Tides, Paperback / softback Book

Only So Many Tides Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Walter Kemsley


Jon Wainwright's love of the sea, and in particular for his boat "Deva", shines through cruising, racing and fishing in a traditional wooden boat over 38 years.

His experience in organizing the best rig for the conditions is matched by his understanding of boat construction and the changes he implemented on "Deva".

This is a lifetime adventure between man and boat with many trials and tribulations for both, capturing some of the best elements of traditional sail.

The story moves through a backcloth of change from the area of Liverpool Docks to Felixstowe and the forging of strong links with Holland in joint classic boat events.
