North Sea Passage Pilot

Garth Cooper is a writer and broadcaster who has sailed his entire life.  He trained as a boatbuilder, went on to be a senior agricultural journalist, a BBC broadcaster, editorial director of a publishing company, then, in a shift in career, wrote for sailing magazines before becoming editor of Anglia Afloat.

He sails a Contest 33.  With Dick Holness, he is co-author of East Coast Pilot and is the new author of North Sea Passage Pilot.  

He's a skipper with the East Anglian Sailing Trust, taking blind people sailing.  When not writing or sailing he helps run the family farm in Norfolk.  He is a member of the Yachting Journalists' Association, the RYA and the Cruising Association. 

He and Dick are very much part of the Imray 'family', leading a team sailing day on the east coast which has become a highlight on the annual calendar.
