Here are insights into the social as well as nautical reality of fitting out, the comfort of highly detailed plans, the norm of impulsive decisions, the inside story of life with a crew, coping with unexpected gales and calms, the live-or-die decision to keep watches or not and the ports of call from Spain to Tobago via the Atlantic islands and West Africa. This is the book that provides practical first-hand advice whilst fuelling the reader's dream.186 pages PB
