I kept steering harder to the right. But the rudder couldn’t overcome the force of the wind. Thirteen tons of steel struck a gleaming SeaRay broadside. Stainless steel tubing shattered like... More > shrapnel. The remains came back to earth in slow motion; the clatter on the deck returning time to normal. The boat slid off and back from her victim like a dismounting bull. “Damn it! I’m sorry….” “Why did you do that?” demanded the truncated owner. Well, I thought the question was quite likely rhetorical, so we settled for a meeting on Monday. There was not enough beer in the world to wash away the embarrassment. By the time I had paid for the repairs to both yachts I was about $4000 poorer, and I suppose that was what made me decide to buy the boat; I already held equity. Travel with Duncan & Irene on an exciting three-year loop of the Atlantic Ocean. Experience storms and the drama of new landfalls. This book will satisfy the experienced blue-water cruiser and equally the armchair sailor.< Less

On the last day of July, 1908, school teacher Ted Popple and his unusually-named friend, Crawford Plenderleith, left England carrying a "change of underclothing, materials for a year's... More > sketching" and a pocket chess board. Under a scorching summer sun, in heavy tweeds, white hats and dark glasses, they cycled from Bordeaux into Spain and back. The following winter, Ted wrote a wryly-amusing longhand account of the trip in a leather-bound notebook. A gifted watercolorist, he illustrated the text with his own delightful illustrations. Though not intended for commercial publication, the book provides a fascinating picture of the life and customs of the region seen through the eyes of a curious and observant traveller. For decades it lay forgotten, until it passed to us, his grandsons. In the centenary year of the original trip, we’re publishing the complete text and illustrations in a full-color edition, with an Afterword describing our own attempt in 2000 to re-cycle the route. - James and Rob White< Less
