    ~~~ Maritime - Sacred to their Memory ~~~

    John Jefferies (JJ) was probably the only man in the world who could name
    the Masters and Mariners of pre- and post- war yachting history, including
    The America's Cup, and his life-long maritime collection is of utmost
    historical value. Being the son of a Mariner who helped in crewing some of
    the largest yachts in the world, JJ has a lifetime's yachting experience to
    his credit.

    Although John recently passed away his book is still available via his
    website .

    The book is a Maritime history of world-famous yachts which names all the
    crew members, nation-wide, who were known to JJ throughout his lifetime. It
    is a tribute to the memory of the Masters, Navigators and the sailor-men of
    England who made up the crewmembers. Pages of memories and anecdotes, moving
    and humorous, make compelling reading, particularly to those deeply
    interested in the history of yachting and seafaring.
