In 2006 I left South Gloucestershire, England a place I still call home, and flew out to the Island of Margarita, Venezuela with my friend and partner to crew on a yacht bound for Australia. We never did sail on that boat. Instead, I bought Tuppenny, an Allied Wright 40' built in 1977 and the rest, as they say, is History. Over the next months and years, I will share my biographical journey with you here. I hope we will both enjoy the passage.
The object of this site is to share with you Poetry and Prose written by me, some video of life aboard a circumnavigating Sailing Yacht, some audio of my poetry, writings from other authors whom I admire and who inspire me, to launch my first book and to inspire those who need it to get out of the rut, take the risk and follow their dream. All this is for me to earn an income to help me maintain my little floating home and continue my circumnavigation.
In time I hope to be able to sell some merchandise (T-shirts/mugs etc) with snippets of my poems to remind you that you too can live your dream, you just have to believe you can.
