Up Aloft with Old Harry is another wonderful collection of Des Sleightholme's batty observations on the sailing scene.

Wickedly perceptive, Sleightholme attacks pomposity with scarifying
gusto, taking the mickey out of everything and everybody afloat. Such
topics as leaking boats, dragging anchors, the charms of twin keels,
the Fastnet Race, moving house by boat, chartering and, of course, the
perils of going aloft, are handled with pitiless relish, while the
improbable yet all too familiar character, Old Harry, appears with
regularity like some pantomime devil in wrinkled red tights.
