O knihe

Tony and Audrey Walter are like thousands of other amateur sailing couples, just ordinary people living a normal life but one of them had a dream. The book is an illuminating and compassionately written account of their voyage round the world in a Salar 40. Each chapter includes an account of both Audrey and Tony's own individual thoughts and observations.

They visited many countries and various idyllic and exotic islands that most people only dream about. Their portrayal of this conjures up images of the varied lives people lead, from paradise to absolute hell.

They experienced numerous gales including a force ten off the Great Barrier Reef and many gear breakages while on passage hundreds of miles from land. Their sometimes unusual and resourceful methods of remedying the various situations are well documented throughout.

An encounter with armed pirates off the coast of Somalia in the Gulf of Aden and how they escaped more serious consequences is also a terrifying yet enlightening tale.

It was initially Tony's dream to sail around the world but it soon became a challenge for them both. This is the true story of how they achieved it.
