Alone at sea, there is no-one else to help haul a fallen spinnaker back on deck or to dive mid-ocean to free a rope from the propeller. A collision with an Indonesian fishing boat, rigging failure, terrifying storms and knock-downs are offset by joy, wonder and pristine tropical islands.

The raw, day to day experience of life at sea is here – the hardship and ecstasy, the soul-searching introspection and self-discovery that solitude brings.
