Then we did it in a blue boat called Scarlet.This is a book of many voyages.There is the meandering trail that leads to the right boat for crossing an ocean. There is the preparation – stalled in a sweltering American boatyard while arguments about equipment and finance combine with the narrowing of the hurricane window.

There is the crossing itself which starts with the wrong weather, broken boat parts, torn sails, serious leaks and a very sea sick crew as Scarlet gets blown off course in unkind seas.Male and female monologues form the internal voyages. The skipper’s thoughts range from the challenges of fitting a wind vane to almost losing an arm in a tangled genoa to the navigational system of the Puluwat Islanders. His wife describes diminishing supplies, the damp, bruises, blue eggs, jelly fish and her anxiety about the deteriorating health of her son who, suffering from ME, should not have been persuaded to go with them.External and internal journeys criss-cross as Scarlet sails on across 3000 miles of ocean.

She would have told a different story.
