Peter Bruce // What Kind of Sailor Authors 'Heavy Weather Sailing'
Listen now
Peter Bruce is both a sailor and a writer of sailing. He most famously wrote the last four editions of the world-famous book HEAVY WEATHER SAILING having taken over from the original author Adlard Coles. A life-time of achievements on the water qualify him to write with such esteemed authority. He has represented Britain on seven occasions, won the Admirals Cup twice, finished the Fastnet Race of 1979, and skippered a blind crew to win a gold medal in the Southern Cross Series in Australia. As much an avid cruiser as he is racer, Peter has also researched and written a number of popular local cruising guides and tidal stream atlases for the South Coast of the UK. -- If you liked this conversation you'll LOVE The QUARTERDECK, 59 North's 'deep dives on the art of seamanship.'
