Turtles in Our Wake

Sandra Clayton

Turtles in Our Wake by Sandra ClaytonMost people at some point long to escape - from the weather, the commute, the routine. Sailing off in a forty-foot boat called Voyager comes at a price, however. Indeed, for David and Sandra Clayton it meant selling their house and possessions with a lifetime's collection of memories and emotions attached to them. But the result proved life-enhancing.

With her eye for detail and vivid descriptions, Sandra carries the reader with her through some of the Mediterranean's loveliest islands. Charmed by tranquil anchorages, ancient harbours and the people they meet, they also develop a fascination...

Solitaire Spirit

Les Powles

Solitaire Spirit by Les PowlesLes Powles only had 8 hours of sailing experience when he decided to sail solo around the world. Many novices would be content to just dream of such an adventure, and maybe get as far as a solo Channel crossing a couple of years down the line. Not so Les Powles, one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary and eccentric sailors.

Les was in his 50s when he built himself a yacht with little prior knowledge of boatbuilding. Remarkably he made it across the Atlantic, though his navigation skills didn't match his boatbuilding abilities; his first landfall was Brazil. He'd been aiming for Barbados...

How to Snog a Hagfish!

Jonathan Eyers

How to Snog a Hagfish! by Jonathan EyersFor most people, seasickness is the most unpleasant thing they
experience at sea. However, beneath the surface is a whole other world,
and a lot of it could turn all but the strongest stomachs.


When attacked, the hagfish (also known as the slime eel) ties
itself in a knot that travels the length of its body, squeezing out
mucus by the bucketful and making it impossible for a predator to keep
hold.
To eat, a starfish regurgitates its stomach, digests its food then
swallows its stomach back down again. Pearlfish stick close to sea cucumbers, whose bowels they swim
into when danger's near. And with shark...
