If you're wondering what Chris Stewart did before he and his girlfriend Ana moved to El Valero their Spanish farm here's one of the answers. He took to the sea, landing a job as skipper sailing a Cornish Crabber around the Greek islands. It was his dream job but there was just one tiny problem. He hadn't ever sailed before and didn't have a clue how to start.

In a series of madcap adventures we follow Chris from a shaky start in Chichester harbour to his epic Odyssey to Spetses (a bucket would have been handy), and on to the journey of a lifetime - battening down the hatches on a trip across the Atlantic.

It's a journey crackling with Chris's zest for life, irresistible humour, and unerring lack of foresight. Dry land never looked more welcoming.

    " A fun and quick read. Stewart agreed to learn how to sail to have a fun summer job and continued to love to sail regardless of the many misadventures he encounters. I was drawn in by the witty British humor at the start and found the author engaging and intelligent...but the humor dwindled midway. Still a fun book but I wish it stayed as funny. "

    " It was a quick read that did have some swearing in it. I'm always a bit envious of people who have lived carefree adventuresome lives. Those who can trot off and work in Greece for a summer, or take 5 months to sail across the Atlantic. So I like reading of their adventures. "

    " Supposed to be a funny book, but apart from the odd item didn't laugh that much. That said was written well as all the other Chris Stewart books are "

    " Sorta funny. A review on the cover says he's funnier than Bill Bryson. I think he's not funnier, but probably just a little better at screwing up in dramatic fashion. My cover was different: it featured a capsized boat, and the arm of a drowning man holding a sign with the title on it. "
