Described as the Swiss Army knife of the seas, the Orkney Yole has been the workhorse of Orcadians for generations.

The Orkney yole is a wooden, clinker-built, double-ended open traditional sailing boat, of Norse lineage, native to Orkney. This book is a celebration of the yole and has been compiled by members of the Orkney Yole Association.

The book covers the history, evolution and construction, together with first hand reminiscences from sailors of these vessels. The book contains wonderful photography throughout.
