Des Sleightholme

Des Sleightholme has a lifetime's experience of boats, sailing and all things nautical. Former editor of Yachting Monthly and now retired, he revels in his freedom to cruise wherever and whenever he wishes. His Old Harry books (four of them), and his more recent autobiography, A Funny Old Life , have all been instant bestsellers. He now lives in South Devon on a cliff overlooking the sea.
