Foreword by Tom Cunliffe
Watching my own child grow up as part of the team aboard my family cruising yacht has been one of the greatest delights of my life. Society is increasingly lacking in direct physical realities, and the adventures we have shared on the water have given us a sense of mutual history that holds us together in a way little else could.
Reading has always been a vital part of my daughter's on-board experience, from Where the Wild Things Are, she progressed through Swallows and Amazons to Hornblower and Conrad, but nothing was produced specifically for kids like her, acquiring the skills of living on board and becoming a useful crew. I've thoroughly enjoyed dipping into Claudia Myatt's earlier Illustrated books, but it's in Go Cruising! that she has really hit the spot for children like mine. The pictures are as friendly as ever, and the tiny figures asking those insistent questions tickle me to death, but what I admire most is the way she has tackled serious subjects such as Navigation and Rules of the Road. Capturing the interest of youthful minds in these areas is an achievement to be proud of. The result will be a generation of youngsters who can't wait to clamber on board. Their parents will have more fun, and families who are happy together at sea grow closer as the years pass.
Come to think of it, this is more than a children's book. For all its clever disguise, the technical content is so good I might just recommend it to some of my Yachtmaster candidates....
