Seamanship: A Voyage Along the Wild Coasts of the British Isles
by Nicolson, Adam
Nicolson loves adventure. Equipped with the Auk (a 42-foot wooden ketch) and a friend who at least knew how to sail, set sets off up the Atlantic coasts of the British Isles and finally to the Faroes. He tells a story passionately engaged with the beauty and marvel of the wild Atlantic coast, and also a self-portrait of a man in the middle of his life who is determined to find out what it’s all for.
