The course of true love and all that..
This is the tale of an idiot who was married in Australia in 1945 and left for Panama after a 3-day honeymoon. A year later and he was so keen to get back to his bride he decided to sail there – a mere 9,000 or so miles – on his own with no sailing or navigational experience. No, none, none whatsoever.
A good yarn that will make a yachtsperson scream quite a lot, a cynic will reach for the sick-bag and a romantic reach for the tissues….
It’s a Readers Union publication 1952 with a stylish dust jacket – slightly nibbled –we assume by small fish, and a bit discoloured – we hope by age.
The book is in good condition.
174 pages of good reading.
5½ x 8¼ inches.
