Salvage in my Sarong
The Mediterranean Dream in a rescued boat
Linda’s new book is filled with coloured photos and sketches from her voyage from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. It’s 356 pages with 112 in colour. Here is the blurb:
Join the latest adventures of Linda and Captain Underpants…….
Salvage in my Sarong is a remarkable story of how Linda’s husband Bill surprises her (and himself), by winning an online bid for an old wooden boat, half way across the world, in the Caribbean. At first Linda is horrified and reluctant to become involved in her husband’s crazy scheme. This sailing boat ‘Lati’, had been abandoned, ransacked and almost stolen by pirates and is a total mess when the couple arrive from Australia.
Linda’s dream of sailing the Mediterranean becomes reality as somehow, this gallant 9.4 metre yacht emerges like Cinderella, taking them across the vast Atlantic to Portugal and the Med. For three summers, Lati takes them on a romantic cruise to Italy, Greece and Turkey fitting easily into quaint harbours with tavernas ashore. However, the voyage is not without drama, as they continue with boat repairs in exotic locations, making many friends along the way.
From the author of Sailing in my Sarong comes this story of resourcefulness, endurance and celebration in the forging of a strong bond between a couple and their boat, a must-read adventure that makes anything seem possible.
