In the summer of 1992 I set off from Falmouth in my tiny 18-foot yacht named Sharky. Some three years later I sailed into Barbados. I’d completed my journey and the challenge that I set myself to sail across the Atlantic. A personal odyssey that brought exhilaration, near-death scrapes and marriage!

It was the culmination of learning to sail, renovating a boat, then a journey that brought new friends and experiences that continue to inspire me to this day. I’m not saying every one should buy a boat and sail away but whatever your dreams…go follow them!

In 2007 I finally completed my book on the adventure titled An Ocean Away.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes quoted.

“A passionate story to inspire us all to follow our dreams”

Required reading for all those with a sense of adventure in their souls!
