Out Of Print... Owen Parker quickly proved a key member of the team when Mr Edward Heath set about campaigning his first Morning Cloud. As sailing master he supplied the know-how of tuning, tactics and racing which only years of experience can bring. He has been a crew member ever since. The Parkers have been professional racing skippers for generations and this is the story of the most successful of them all. From early days as a paid hand on the Solent, to offshore racing, a chastening trip to the USA in search of the Americas Cup, and an invitation to sail in Morning Cloud with success in the Sydney-Hobart and Admirals Cup races, this is fascinating reading. Told with a feeling for the subject, Parkers story of the evolution of the modern offshore racing scene from the inside, and his comments on running a crack racing boat, will be of interest to all who love sailing.
