Sail-World.com : Book Review – Shooting Stars and Flying Fish written by Nancy Knudsen

Book Review – Shooting Stars and Flying Fish written by Nancy Knudsen

'Shooting and Stars and Flying Fish full book cover'    . ©

A light-hearted but inspirational memoir about a remarkable couple who left behind the corporate rat-race to follow their dream of sailing around the world - a story that demonstrates the rewards of taking risks to follow one's star.

Description:

When Nancy Knudsen and her architect husband Ted Nobbs decide to escape their high-pressure corporate lives and follow a dream of sailing around the world together, little do they guess where their journey will lead them.

Nancy and Ted cross all the great oceans of the world and visit dozens of countries. Their adventures are sometimes hilarious, sometimes life-threatening, and lead to the beginning of many life-long friendships.

As well as recounting the comedy of their cockpit disputes and the sheer breathtaking beauty of their five-year adventure, Shooting Stars and Flying Fish shows how the couple's experiences both humble them and irrevocably change their attitudes, ethics and outlook on life, with neither returning to the corporate world on their return to Australia.

This book is a beautifully written, inspirational memoir that shows the rewards of taking a risk to follow one's dreams.

Price: AUD $29.99 (NZ$36.99)
