A story many ordinary sailors will relate to - the dream of sailing the Atlantic and the urge to undertake a memorable sail before decrepitude sets in! Entertainingly written, thought provoking, alternately moving and humorous, Latymer has an appealing style that carries the reader along Dramatic incidents on the trip give the writing pace and excitement An excellent complement to our practical Atlantic sailing books
Crispin Latymer works in London's financial markets and had sailed with family and friends in the UK and Europe for many years before setting out on his epic solo Atlantic crossing. He undertook the voyage in 2005 for charity and raised GBP40,000 in the process.
'Understated and entertaining, inspirational and thought provoking, Crispin's story speaks not only to ordinary sailors but also to anyone contemplating their own unfulfilled dreams.' All at Sea (September 2009) 'The book is very readable, and the author has achieved much of what many of us of a similar vintage would like to achieve before we run out of time.' Nautical Magazine (November 2009) '...a riveting read with actual relevance to those planning such a trip...real sailing - real emotion.' Practical Boat Owner (December 2009) 'For those whose aspirations to sail solo are in their infancy this is a very worthwhile book including his "Lessons Learnt". Royal Naval Sailing Association Journal (WInter 2009) '...likeable and amusing...Crispin's thoughts on his own life give the book depth...and extremely personal and moving tale.' Yachting Monthly (June 2010) 'a gripping tale, graphically told, and illustrated with some excellent colour photographs.' The International Journal of Meteorology (August 2010)
