About the Author

Jan Mitchell moved from New Zealand to live in Australia in 1970. Since her twenties, Jan has written magazine stories about her sailing adventures, having been published in Personality (South Africa), Cruising World (USA), Australian Sea Spray, Cruising Helmsman, Australian Sailing and Woman's Day. Her other non-fiction books are tinker tailor, soldier, sailor...the life of Colin Kerby OAM, Crossings in Realitas and Hear the Ocean Sing. The latter two books are the second and third volumes of a three-part sailing memoir of ocean voyages made by Jan, her husband, Ian, and their two sons. Ian Mitchell is an Australian sailor who, during the 1970s, circumnavigated the world in twenty-five foot Caprice with his wife, Jan Mitchell. He has written and published several articles in sailing magazines. He worked as a Civil Engineer for Water Resources in NSW.


A first-class, well-written book by people who dared to sail around the world in a 25-foot boat. 'Two in a Top Hat' is easy to read, informative and should provide inspiration to those who aspire to travel the globe in a small boat. The book is also a testament to the Top Hat, a diminutive, GRP constructed full keel sailing yacht with the inherent strength to tackle the world's oceans. Highly recommended. Ross McCrae, Amazon customer.Unusual. Crossed the Bight westwards and lots more. Followed the travels in a magazine years ago. Glad to have it whole. Kindle customer, Grace Foubisher.Great read. Amazon customer, Dave.I loved Two in a Top Hat. I was mainly unfamiliar with the voyage until I read it. An amazing adventure by anyone's standard. Re Crossings in Realitas, congratulations are in order. Another excellent sailing publication. Andrew Cortis, sailor.I couldn't put it down. Read the whole book in two sittings. Bruce Walker, sailor.Great read
