Brian is the author of seven books including the international best seller Risk in Being Alive revised and released again in 2010 as Grabbing Life.  Some of his earlier books are out of print or were available as vanity press for the client. The book, Winning Spirit, a lovely coffee table book for England's BG Group was about their winning effort in the 2000/01 Global Challenge race around the world. His definitive book on sails and sail technology, Maximum Sail Power will be available as an electronic download in 2020. In the meantime you can download a pdf version of the book here or read more about the book on my sailmaking page.

There are three books in the Grabbing Series; Grabbing Life is a rewrite of Risk in Being Alive with more stories added. Grabbing the World is a memoir that centers around the creation of the Portimão Global Ocean Race, a new circumnavigation race for small boats. Grabbing the Dream is a work in progress. The subtitle, Life Lessons Learned on the Lip of an Ocean Swell, says it all.
