Sam Jefferson, despite growing up in a particularly land locked corner of the Lake District, has an overriding passion for boats and the sea. Clipper Ships, his first book, reflects his lifelong fascination with all things nautical and a lifetime of research has made him one of the leading authorities on the clipper ship era. In addition to working as a nautical journalist and writer, Mr Jefferson has enjoyed stints working as a passenger boat skipper on the Thames, sailed everywhere from the Southern Ocean to the South China Seas delivering yachts, and taught sailing in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
