Description
In 1976 Rod Heikell set off for the Mediterranean in "Roulette" a 20' boat that should probably have never left the sheltered waters of the Solent. Via the French Canals and Biscay he somehow got there and sailed to Corsica, Italy and so on to Greece. This book records the near disasters, and highs and lows of a voyage which shaped his life in ways he never imagined. He became the accidental sailor and developed a life-long love of sailing and exploring the seas. In 1987 he took "Rozinante" a Mirror Offshore 18 down the Danube, behind the Iron Curtain to the Black Sea and Aegean, probably the longest voyage one of these tubby little craft has made.
These were simple voyages on small yachts with minimal equipment that shaped what Rod was to do in ways he never invisaged. "It's a mistery, an accident" he is fond of saying when asked how it all started. 200pages P/B
