A last, a beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide to the most prestigious sailing ships in the world today – Tall Ships. Tall Ships and the cutty Sark Races will appeal not only to those who have a special interest in sailing and the sea, but to anyone who has enjoyed the magnificent spectacle of the Tall Ships and would like to know more about these majestic and romantic vessels.

Packed with interesting data and technical facts about the Tall Ships, the book examines a further dimension: with the centenary of steam eclipsing sail looming over the horizon, why are so many windjammers still under sail today? The answer lies in the precious cargoes of young people under training from all over the world. As the former Assistant Race Director of the Sail Training Association, Paul Bishop gives a fascinating insight into the many organisations that send these youngster before the mast.

Illustrated with breath taking photographs and line drawings, Tall Ships and the Cutty Sark Races is as visually impressive as it is informative.

A book to be cherished by all who love the sea.
