An inspiring personal narrative of a weekend sailor’s circumnavigation of Britain in 50 days sails (and 1 night passage).

Kim C. Sturgess was a weekend sailor: he enjoyed club racing and several brief sailing holidays, but had never attempted a substantial expedition. Reaching the age of fifty focused the mind and he decided to sail around Britain.

While many cruising sailors would not contemplate a 1900 nautical mile voyage, he broke the expedition into a series of day sails, making it an achievable ambition for him, largely single-handed, and for many other weekend sailors who may dream of sailing around their home island.

This book tells the quirky traveller’s narrative of the voyage and visits to forty-eight towns.
