Olma Mignacca took no interest in boats and sailing, then one day she and her partner decided to buy a boat and sail around the world. Written from an Australian woman's perspective, this book gives a lively account of what happens when two people throw away the trappings of a "normal" life and explore the world by yacht. The text is full of anecdotes and observations, such as nipple-twisting Moustafa Abid in Oman, and Mr Boozo, the obnoxious Caribbean optician with a collection of glass eyes on wire stilts. Mignacca takes the reader on a journey through the jungles, deserts, great cities and island chains of the world and across oceans. 375 pages. Light fading to spine edge. Foxing to outer page edges.
