Three Ways To Capsize A Boat - An Optimist Afloat
by Chris Stewart
Publication date: June 4th 2009
||If youíre wondering what Chris Stewart did
before he and Ana moved to El Valero, their Spanish farm, hereís one of
the answers. He took to the sea, landing a job as skipper for the summer,
sailing a Cornish Crabber around the Greek islands. It was his dream job
Ė and there was just one tiny problem. He hadnít ever sailed before
and had not the foggiest how to start.
In a series of madcap and hilarious adventures we follow Chris from a shaky start in Chichester harbour to his epic Odyssey to Spetses (a bucket would have been handy), and then on to the journey of a lifetime Ė battening down the hatches on a trip across the North Atlantic. Itís a journey crackling with Chrisís zest for life, irresistible humour, and unerring lack of foresight.
