Auteur

Initially a reluctant sailor, Sandra Clayton fell in love with sailing and the sea, and the urge to write it all down became irresistible. Writing has been her pastime or job for most of her life, and her work includes an award winning radio play for the BBC. She and her husband cruise full time from spring to autumn, and ski all winter.



Texte du rabat

Proving that sailing is not just the husband's pursuit, this charming
narrative of one couple's first long distance voyage is told from the
wife's perspective. Writing in a lively, humorous way, Sandra Clayton
gives an entertaining account of her and husband David's maiden
cruise from the UK, down the Atlantic coast and into the warm waters of
the Mediterranean. Conscious that old age or poor
health could prevent them from sailing away for much longer, they left
the
world of work behind to chase their dream of adventure. Conditions are
sometimes maddening, occasionally dangerous, but frequently magical.
Marine creatures enchant their days while ships that pass in the night
add a touch of romance.



But the book is far more than just the story of the Claytons' 2000 mile
trip.
Somewhat unprepared for what faced them on the way, they had to learn
from their own mistakes, finding themselves in places and situations
where they never expected to be. The book has plenty to offer those who
might
consider embarking on a similar voyage of their own: learn how the
Claytons did it, which route they took, the beautiful locations they
visited, who they met along the way, and their good decisions as well
as their bad. A great bunkside read, it may inspire others to make a
similar break themselves.
