Maritime - Sacred to their Memory

Maritime - Sacred to their Memory is a maritime history of world-famous yachts which names all of the crew members, nation-wide, known to author John Jefferies throughout his lifetime.

It is a tribute to the memory of the Masters, Navigators and the sailor-men of England who made up these crews on famous yachts owned by equally famous ladies and gentlemen, including Sir Thomas Lipton with his five famous 'Shamrocks', Lord Dunraven with his 'Valkyries' and US oil tycoons Lord and Lady Fairhaven, who were great benefactors to Great Britain during the second world war, and their luxury yacht 'SY Sapphire II', not forgetting the two most famous of all the yachts, the royal racing cutter 'Britannia' and the racing schooner 'Westward', of which Jefferies owns all old subject matter.

Every page holds memories and contains many anecdotes, both moving and humorous. It makes compelling reading, particularly to those deeply interested in the history of yachting and seafaring.
