When we were preparing to launch our Sail-World cruising site many years ago, we put an advertisement in Sail-World. A few days later we got an email from an Australian cruising sailor, living in Turkey. She and her husband Ted Nobbs were part the way thru a round the world cruise.
I went off to read her blog about Blackwattle and their adventures. Within minutes I was enthralled. So Nancy became our Sail-World Cruising editor and we and our audience followed these adventurers home, while we had hours of skype conversations along the way. The tales Nancy recounted to our rapidly growing audience formed the basis of Nancy's book Shooting Stars and Flying Fish. Its a great read, I've read it twice and laughed out loud, at stories I almost know off by heart. Its about sailing, but more is about life and the decisions we make. Its a sea-change and a tree-change rolled into one and I smile every day about some of the on deck conversations between Nancy and Ted, and these days happily enjoy listening to them in person.
Read it, give it to your friends. Talk to Nancy at the Sydney Boat Show, she'll sign a copy for you.
In this newsletter there is a review on the book and right at the bottom a link to a recent newspaper feature article, thats definitely worth reading too.
If you liked this newsletter, do nothing, we will send you another .. Naa, please don't send me another.
