    As a OCH life member, I put it to you here; it would be excellent should OCH somehow be able to show Capt.Cunliff’s videos in library , and better yet if they could arrange to offer his training texts (books) to the American market or at least OCH members ,eh ?
    How’s about it then mates ?

      Many thanks Dony for your kind remarks. Anyone who would like to buy one of my textbooks can do so, from September through to April, from my website You can also watch all my video blogs on there too. I really love the American people who have always been good to me on my travels by sea and motorcycle, so it would be grand to know that more of them are sharing my life.

    Thanks Tom. I’m going to get this one for my 12 year-old twins. I’ve been looking for just this sorta thing for them in prep of next summer’s big three-island camp-cruise.

    You just have to love this guy. I have been listening to his podcasts. His no nonsense delivery and terrific content is pure poetry. Keep at it Tom, hope you are on the mend and sailing again soon.

    I am very familiar with Cunliffe’s writing. I probably will not take his advice in this instance at the age of 81. I may however get the book he recommends.
