Seeking Peyton's people

The biography of world famous yachting cartoonist Mike Peyton is reaching a conclusion and will be published soon. If you have appeared in one of his thousands of drawings either in UK waters or abroad, then Yachting Monthly would like to hear from you.

The 88-year-old sailor still cruises his 38ft ferro-cement yawl, Touchstone, from Maldon, Essex, and is still at his drawing board after every passage, recording both his own mishaps and those of others in well-observed graphics.

His ‘toons’ have appeared in nearly every yachting journal in the world and he still regularly draws for most of the UK and several European titles.

If you have looked upon his work and felt a strange sense of self-recognition please contact Dick Durham at
