The Call of the Running Tide by Wallace Clark
£11
0 In Stock
Add to Cart
'The Call of the Running Tide spans the full range of Wallace Clark's sailing endeavours, from boyhood adventures on local dams and rivers to his last trip, a voyage in the Adriatic in 2010 when the author was in his eighty-fourth year. It tells of visits to creeks, islets, secret harbours and landfalls on shores near and far over more than six decades. The book is packed with sailing tips and anecdotes from Cape Horn to Norway, the Azores to the Aegean.
Wallace died in 2011 before he could complete this, his last book, and the final text was edited by his son Bruce and Tara Mackie. The book also draws widely on contributions from Wallace's family, friends and crewmates, as they remember this charismatic and ground-breaking author and sailor.'

'HMS Drake was torpedoed on 2 October 1917, five miles north of Rathlin Island, off the north coast of Ireland. She later sank in Church Bay, the largest wreck close to the shore in Irish waters, and is passed daily by island residents and visitors alike. But that was not all that happened on that epic day, which bought some of the horrors of the Great War to the quiet shores of Rathlin Island. Recounting the life, times and death of the Drake, these stories are now being told for the first time...

Marine Life of Britain and Ireland

The cool temperate waters around Britain and Ireland are at the cross roads between warmer waters to the south and colder Arctic ones to the north. Consequently they contain a huge variety of marine animals and plants which differ significantly from place to place around our islands.

Seasearch Observer's Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland aims to introduce the reader to a selection of the animals and plants, from sponges to fishes and sea squirts to seaweeds, that are most regularly seen by divers, snorkellers and rockpoolers around our coasts.

Over 200 species are described in detail, with underwater photographs to aid identification in situ. Each account contains information on identification, habitat, size and distribution and how to distinguish them from similar animals and plants.

Seasearch Observer's Guide to Marine Life of Britain and Ireland is produced as part of the Seasearch project, which offers training in marine life and habitats and encourages recording by volunteers. Learn More
