If you’re wondering what Chris Stewart did before he and his girlfriend Ana moved to El Valero their Spanish farm here’s one of the answers. He took to the sea, landing a job as skipper sailing a Cornish Crabber around the Greek islands. It was his dream job but there was just one tiny problem. He hadn’t ever sailed before and didn’t have a clue how to start.
In a series of madcap adventures we follow Chris from a shaky start in Chichester harbour to his epic Odyssey to Spetses (a bucket would have been handy), and on to the journey of a lifetime – battening down the hatches on a trip across the Atlantic.
It’s a journey crackling with Chris’s zest for life, irresistible humour, and unerring lack of foresight. Dry land never looked more welcoming.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The author is comical but too the point. Really made me feel like I was right there with him, especially trying to piss off the side of a boat with foul weather gear on in a nasty storm.
