Absolutely! Everything About Cowes: The Home of World Yachting - Isle of Wight by Marie-Claire Baroness von Alvensleben

£7.99

Product description

Absolutely Everything About Cowes is for lovers of sailing and beautiful boats and is a unique publication packed with information and stunning pictures. It provides a fascinating in-depth study into Cowes past and present, with 250 pages of history, characters, regattas and atmosphere, featuring an 88 page supplement of the 150th anniversary of the America's Cup 2001 regatta.
Aspects covered include the golden age of yachting - which was then the sport of Kings and gentry, the story of Cowes, Uffa Fox, the Royal Yacht Squadron and Cowes Yacht Clubs, the regattas, places of cultural and historical interest, Beken of Cowes, Ratsey and Lapthorn, Spencer Rigging, hi-tech marine industries, GKN Westland Aerospace, as well as the best hotels on the Island. Also covered is the 31st America's Cup and GBR Challenge 2003.

The bottom corner of the front and back covers are slightly bent as are the very bottom corners of the first and last 5 or 6 pages. There are one or two small marks on the outer surface of the cover, otherwise the book does not really appear to have been read.
