Former Classic Boat editor Nic Compton has spent over 20 years sailing and photographing classic yachts, and this is the culmination of his decades-long passion - a stunning collection showcasing the 20 most beautiful and fascinating classic boats still sailing today. They include: Bona Fide - the original fin-keeler that was 70 years ahead of her time Inward Bound - a 35ft cutter built in Argentina using salvaged timber from the General Belgrano Madoc - a 24ft clinker yawl built on a Tasmanian beach by hand Partridge - an 1885 cutter that took 18 years to restore Solway Maid - the last surviving William Fife yacht Timeless and magnificent, these yachts all have a story to tell, and they are captured with glorious full colour photography.To Dominic Ziegler for his help with Mariana#39;s archive pics (we got there in the end !). ... Petersen for the trip of a lifetime on board Stavanger and the loan of a fabulous lens, and the crew of Harald V for driving me home!
