Man The Ropes

By Augustine Courtauld

Published by Golden Duck

Between the world wars, Augustine Courtauld spent five months solo in a tent carrying out a meteorological survey on the Greenland ice cap. To help him through the long, cold nights he dreamed of designing his ideal yacht and upon his return discovered she already existed in the form of Duet, drawn by Linton Hope.

She can still be seen today on the UK’s East Coast where she voyages as a sail training vessel.

Courtauld was one of the founders of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve and as a stiff upper lipped adventurer dispenses irony and cool throughout the pages of this classic tale.
