One Hand for Yourself, One for the Ship is a course on single-handed sailing by the man most qualified to give it. It is a highly personal perspective on both the science and art of this ultimate challenge, and it bears the unmistakable stamp of one who has lived on and for the sea.
Tristan Jones was born aboard his father's sailing ship as it rounded Cape Horn. He grew up in Wales and later joined the Royal Navy. After he left the service, he began a career of yacht deliveries and, aboard his own yachts, undertook some of the most ambitious small craft journeys ever made. He has written many books about his incredible adventures and is one of the best-loved nautical writers today. His collection of stories Yarns is also published by Sheridan House.
