Enthralled from childhood by the sea, ships, ports, landfalls, storms and everything to do with sea travel, Gavin Young set off on a sea voyage that was to take him halfway round the world on small, local boats of every kind. His love of the sea was inspired by Conrad, and this vivid and moving account of his journey - summoning up lands, people, conversation and memories - brings that masterly novelist to mind.
