Hi Pete or can I call you Winston,

I’ve read the aforementioned titles and for the most part enjoyed the contents. I would question the sanity of sailing to Norway and Iceland, but so be it. Lee Hughes’s book was very disappointing for me as he didn’t complete the mission as advertised, which left me feeling a bit cheated. He never did reply to my email to that effect.
A book that I found totally engrossing and uplifting was the voyage undertaken by Tania Aebi and described in her book Maiden Voyage, not in a Wayfarer, but in another classic a Contessa 26, which she sailed around the world. She wrote that she started learning to sail only from the moment she cast off in New York. You will love or hate the father who pushed her to complete the voyage.

Happy reading.
