Sẹras Chaluim Shẹrais was from Bernera on the Isle of Lewis and, like most of his generation, grew up with the sea in his veins. In his later years, before his death in 1968, in an old blue ledger he set down all he could recall of the Gaelic sailing lore and terminology of the older days. It was a labour of love, and when Windfall was awarded the contract to produce a book from that ledger, we knew we had to do justice to his spirit.
