Tom Diaper's Logbook is the memoir of a remarkable man and a rare opportunity to read first-hand about the drama, conflict and fascinating details that made up the life of a for-hire racing skipper during the glory days of racing. Tom Diaper wrote his memoirs on scraps of paper and old cigarette papers and these were pulled together to give a narrative of his life from a toddler on his father s yacht until his retirement as a skipper. The book tells of dramatic races with the German Kaiser, working for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, both World Wars and other exciting adventures over Tom s lifetime.

The book was first published in 1950, a year after Tom s death, and has been popular amongst sailors and sailing enthusiasts ever since. Now reissued with the original photos plus explanatory footnotes and a foreword from renowned sailor and fan of the book, Tom Cunliffe, Tom Diaper s Logbook is an ideal gift for lovers of sea stories, action and real-life adventure.
