Dave Robson’s writing is about being the best you. What he says can be applied in any field, not just sailing.
Dave took up sailing after his divorce in 1984. Since then he’s owned a variety of boats starting with a Mirror dinghy. His current pride and joy is Prana, a Contest 40s yacht which he keeps in France.
Apart from having skippered his own and various charter boats numerous times, many and varied are the yachts he’s crewed on over the years, sailing with a variety of skippers. When he started, he knew nothing about sailing nor did he know anyone with a boat, so he completed every RYA yacht training course and exam from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster Offshore and Yachtmaster Ocean Theory. He is also a qualified shorebased instructor.
Along the way, Dave has accumulated many colourful stories and experiences with which to illustrate the points he makes in this book and has been invited back to crew many times on the boats of his sailing companions.
