Off Watch With Old Harry is another delightfully entertaining collection of Des Sleightholme's amusing observations on the nautical scene. The 'joys' of antifouling, the bloody-mindedness of marine engines, the dubious pleasures of sailing on a spring tide, skippers, launching, and novice crew are just some of the subjects aired by 'Old Harry'. Perceptive, amusing and presented in Sleightholme's inimitable style, each episode is enlivened with a cartoon illustration. An ideal bunkside read. 'There are really only two side-splitting yachting journalists operating today - one of them is J D Sleightholme' Dolphin Book Club 'For the best humorous writing, Old Harry still reigns supreme' Yachting Monthly
