Publisher's summary

In A Foolish Voyage, Neil Hawkesford gives us a remarkable tale not just about sailing but about life. Good times and bad. Here we learn what happens at the very limits of physical, emotional, and mental endurance. Here we also learn how personal tragedy can lead to a life-changing discovery, the realization that hidden deep inside all of us is the perseverance and passion needed for achieving life's greatest goals.

Exciting, philosophical and moving.

This is a relatively short book, but none the worse for that, packed as it is with moments of hope, excitement, pathos, tear wrenching sadness and ultimately deliverance. Whatever stage of our journeys we are on in our love of the sea, there is something all of us will recognize in here, even inexperienced sailors like myself who spend more time on land dreaming than on the water living. For us dreamers, this book really hits the spot.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
