Dave Selby is the Impractical Boat Owner
Sailing & The Sea Belong to Everyone!

The real truth is that there is nothing practical about sailing whatsoever. That’s the whole point. Sailing is sublimely pointless, magnificently impractical, and I am the very living embodiment of that. I am THE IMPRACTICAL BOAT OWNER. I bought my first boat, a 1970s Sailfish 18 called Marlin, in 2004 and since then I’ve floundered around the east-coast and beyond without dying once. If I can do it anyone can. Since 2005 I’ve been chronicling my adventures every month in Practical Boat Owner, and along the way I’ve found that sailing has transformed my life in many wonderful ways. These days I simply want to share everything that sailing has to give, the pleasure, pain, fun, laughter, grief and joy….

Book

 

The Impractical Boat Owner (£9.99 from Bloomsbury, the same people who publish JK Rowling, but she got a bigger advance and her books don’t even have pictures in) is based on my early writings in Practical Boat Owner magazine and chronicles my meteoric rise from total novice to complete incompetent. Buy it here...

Public Speaking

 

You can listen to me for free most Friday nights in The Queen’s Head in Maldon, but if you want to pay I can come and talk at your club, private function, show, corporate bash or luxury cruise ship. In fact, if your yacht club’s in Antigua I won’t even charge a - just pay my travel (business class) and expenses. Book me now...

Gaincharity

www.gaincharity.org.uk is the charity that funds research into a range of rare auto-immune illnesses and provides support for sufferers and families. I was diagnosed with a variant in 2012. Since then, creating awareness of this rare condition and charity fund-raising have become  a driving force in all I do.
